Old Bridge resident, J. Eugene Salomon, and Diane S. Dahl present their recently self-published book: Sweet Memories: Family, Friends, Chess and Sugar.

Come hear how and why Gene was once called a “chess prodigy” in his native Spain at age 14, and how he rose from the sugar mills of pre-Castro Cuba to eventually become and executive and consultant with industry leaders from Sucrest to Domino, the world’s foremost sugar companies.

Gene is still an active chess player, and would love to play after his talk!  Test your skills against this U.S. Chess Federation Life master!
