LETTER: Who Remembers the Hinkey Dinks?


Last week I went to a girls soccer game to watch my grand daughter 6a00d8341bf7d953ef011571942740970b-120wi
play at the Gloucester City High School field.  I've seen the school several times riding past on Route 130.

As I was watching the game with my son  I  had a Gloucester City flash
back. That area used to be called " The hinkey dinks".
Maybe you or one of your readers can remember where it got that name. I remember the cement wall that had " Jesus Saves ".  Under the quote someone wrote GREEN STAMPS.
 DO you remember "Jesus saves Green Stamps "?

 Back then it was funny now it's a lawsuit. How times have changed.
