"When I was 3 years (1947 or 1948) old my mom & dad, Ray & Ceil Verstegen bought the building on the corner of Main & Maes Ave. It was the original general store in the first yrs of Kimberly's origination. They had the first Red Owl Store put downstairs & we lived upstairs. Later it became The Toy Corner, the hottest corner in Kimberly. My brothers, Lyle, Randy & I spent many hours at the Kimberly pool just down the street and at the Clubhouse. In summer we spent alot of time in Sunset Park, which then was just a big woods with a few trails."
