    Post Aruba History enquiry

    Hi Everyone,

    Hoping to connect with people on this forum who lived in Aruba from the 1940's during Lago Oil period.

    Thank you.

    A friend of mine grew up in the Lago Colony. You can contact him via his email from his e-booklet about Aruba:

    Hi and welcome! I grew up in the Colony in the 90's when Coastal took over. I obviously can't be of much help, but love hearing from others that lived there. We lived in #77 and #69 during our time on the island. 77 was directly above the tennis courts, and 69 was directly above Rogers Beach, across from the church. I'm hoping to take lots of photos on "The Colony" in my next trip down

    Thank you Amy. Apologies for the very late reply, as have not been receiving notifications of responses. The booklet is very informative and interesting. Definitely a one-stop shop booklet!
