The gem in our backyards

By Howard Senft from The Wheatley School Alumni Association Newsletter # 89

I grew up in the “S Section” on Sherwood Lane. In the late 1980s and early 1990s my friend Stu Fox (non-Wheatley; not to be confused with Stewart Fox, 1964) and I held the lease to the Country Club. His parents ran the snack bar. We re-did the pool and tennis courts…..but the community residents never paid more then $100 for a membership, which made it very difficult to operate a successful club. I’m still in contact with Stew, and it’s sad to hear that the club has gone downhill. The residents still don’t realize the gem in their own backyards!
