History Talk  - Reminiscing Roop’s
SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2019, 3:00 PM
For 101 years, four generations of the Roop family kept Roop's Grocery open six days a week. Join us for a history talk by Mayor Neal Roop, who began working at the store with his father, H. Cassell Roop, when he was 8 years old. Neal was the last Roop behind the store’s counter when it closed on the last day of 1997.

RESERVATIONS: Shirley Schrier: 240-285-5918 shirleyatlaughter@verizon.net

Learn more about Roop's Grocery, and New Windsor's other past businesses, at our Museum! We try to have the Museum open on Saturdays between 10 and 1:00, but because we are all volunteers, this isn't always possible. We can open by appointment; call 301-346-0764 for more information. Wish we were open more often? Join the Committee and volunteer; we'd love to have you!
