Leisure Time

“Growing up in the valley back then, you had activities that weren’t planned. You could play sports in the backyard and the neighbors would come over. And we’d play baseball or throw a football around. We would have a lot of church group activities. We would go to the beach.”

~ Bill Watanabe
