Poppy Days in Solon, May 19-28

SOLON– Each year, the American Legion Auxiliary distributes poppies to commemorate the sacrifice of our servicemen and women who gave their lives in our country’s wars.

Food For Thought

A recent luncheon with some of my old school friends, several of whom I first met in kindergarten, brought to mind the toys and activities we enjoyed during the late 1930s and early ‘40s. Looking back, I suppose I had more toys than the average child from a family of comparable means, because of my dad’s belief a child’s business was playing, and the tools for that business were toys.
