While no one could ever fill Johnny's shoes, there is a new barber clipping away by the name of Lenny Aronow. Lenny has 40 years of experience in a barber's chair, with the last 20 years working down the street at Guy's Men Salon. Gino is excited about no longer working solo at the shop and to date, customers clipped by Lenny like the new guy's work and Lenny is fitting in like an old shoe. Johnny & Gino's reminds me of my younger days get- Gino is a trusting man. He knows a good barber when he sees one. As you can see, he isn't just a barber but a customer too. (Photo by Sal Giarratani) ting my haircut in North Square at Grande's at the corner of Garden Court and Little Prince Street. Back then, Dominic and Paul were well-known in the neighborhood and an insti- tution in North Square. Both those guys were great bar- bers. My father was best friends with Paul, the older brother, growing up in the Sacred Heart parish. Dominic loved his job and enjoyed the banter with his customers both in and out of the chair. Growing up I got many crew-cuts from both these bros. Gino cuts my do now, because I love a barber with lots of hair like me. He knows his hair and I told him to treat my hair as if it were his own. So far, so good. For now, it is Jonny & Gino's with new kid on the block Lenny.

Coaches Finizi, . DiBlasi and Sharkey were all heroes helping the chil- dren to safety. They received citations from the Board of Selectmen in Norwood. The two teams that were in the build- ing when the roof clasped had an oppor- tunity to meet with Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid at the Star Market in Dedham the following day. The Bruins also invited the teams to attend the March 5th game versus the Flames where they met Center Patrice Bergeron and received hockey sticks.
