Have a Happy and Safe Labor Day

Happy Polio Anniversary to Alice Sporar on her 70th polio anniversary on Labor Day! That’s when Alice was diagnosed. Her dad brought that up every year! He also brought up Dec.7 every year in remembrance of  when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and the US entered WW2. LOL! They called him the bearer of bad tidings.
