​Share Memories with our Neighbors
The Andersons
on Highwood Drive

Wendy Anderson was the first resident of San Carlos to participate in San Carlos Gone By.  She shared with me pictures and stories  about her childhood and her parents, Jada and Jim,  and I want to give her a shout out of appreciation for her many contributions,  patience,  and interest in our community project.

"Climax" subdivision.

Before the Andersons bought their house on Highwood they rented a house on Amber Lake.  You see the Milk Man here bringing  a young cow to entertain the children for a party at Wendy's house.  Wendy says there were many, many children in the neighborhood
in those days.
