James P Burke of Point Rock discussed his book “A Lifetime on the Hill” at Trailside Restaurant. He has lived in Point Rock all of his life and had colorful tales to tell!
The book emphasizes the hardships his dad and mom endured as they raised 10 children on Tug Hill. Jim also sang songs he composed based on his family life.
The Library board would like to thank Jim for a very entertaining lunch and thank Heather and staff at Trailside Restaurant for the wonderful meal.
