20. We moved to Oakland

in 1959 when I was 10. Except for my college years, I've lived here most of my life since. The Modes of Elkton opened the soda fountain you remember in about 1966. Later it was bought by Tollefsons and expanded into a 4 star restaurant. For many years people drove from Eugene just to eat at Tolly's. New purchasers after Tolly Tollefson had a stroke couldn't make a go of it, and it was recently shut down on a federal tax levy, and sold. I'm waiting to see if the new owners can serve up a phoenix.
