A kertbe ment / She Went into the Garden

EIGHT YEARS AND STILL COUNTING

In tribute to our late Editor Emeritus Joseph Balogh, we wish to show our kind readers the reach his printed Magyar News, our predecessor, had! 

As far as we could determine, of the Hungarian churches and businesses mentioned in the article,  only the Calvin United Church of Christ on Kings Highway and the successors of Drotos Brothers Hungarian Imports in Fairfield are still functioning.  St. Emery R.C. Church is still open, but not for regular Hungarian services.  The same is true of St. Ladislaus in South Norwalk.  
 
What a difference 20 years make!  

This article was published in the May 1998 issue of Magyar News
