Lakeside Historical Society:Tom & Dee Prendergast
Your article about the Boathouse on Lindo Lake brings fond memories to us. I met Derrelyn Norris in the 8th grade at Lakeside Jr. High School. She was from Texas and I was from San Diego. We met at a dance at the Historical Church and I brought her to the Boathouse where we had our first Kisses. Do you know how important that was to two thirteen year olds?
Well Derrelyn and Tom went together all through the 8th grade and 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades at Grossmont High School and guess what? We married one week after graduation and have been married for fifty-three years.
What a great Boathouse. That was Lakeside in the fifties, Great Years! We have been Lakeside residents for 58 years.
