I went with the Ionics Ave Boys Club in 1960 to Fenway Park. Mew saw Ted Williams hit his 506th Homerun. Memorable.

I remember going to the Boys Club in 1928 -1938 every day after school. I was always disappointed when it closed on Sundays. I have fond memories of the staff to include Charlie Bunker who ran the Athletic dept and Art Crowley the swimming coach! Good ol days!

Joined the club in 1947 and the annual fee was 25 cents. Played basketball for Ionics for two year's, 52 and 53. Some years there would be netting up in the gym and we would play softball with other clubs. Charlie Cello and Tom Foisy were two of out best players. Of course the one and only Charlie Bunker was our coach. When I retired in October of 1993, After that, I returned to the club a number of times to play BB with all the other alumni. Still have a photo of the Ionics basketball team. Those were the great years

I have one of the pool tables that were upstairs for so many years. I put new corners felt and pockets it is a beautiful solid table. Looking for some information on it because there is no plaque on the table. I’m guessing these can be as old as 1930s? The one I have I have totally restored. These are oversized tables for sure and three piece slate. any information would be awesome and helpful thank you.
