On 2/28/2004 Dick wrote" Holmquest School brings back great memories of summer in New Hope. Sometime in the early 80's I was asked by the bank to head up the merger with Solebury National Bank of New Hope. Consequently, I spent a lot of time in the area. I ventured out one day to see our vacation retreats in New Hope. This included The Holmquist School and the house on the canal where I was run down by a '39 or '40 Buick on the bridge that spanned the canal. Now that I think of it this experience was not among the great memories of New Hope for me. Dick
