MIDDLESEX COUNTY – Here are some memories from a contributor: “I worked for the Linwood Grove as a high school student, working in the snack bar, setting up and cleaning the ballroom. I later worked as a bartender. I believe that the picture was a postcard that the owners had made up for advertising purposes.”
