Important dates coming up – September 20th – PICTURE DAY; September 23rd – MOBILE DENTIST. DID YOU KNOW… One of President John Tyler’s grandsons is still alive today! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? Follow this – President Tyler, the 10th US president, born in 1790, was 63 when his son, Lyon Tyler, was born in 1853. Lyon was 75 when his son, Harrison Tyler, was born in 1928. The President’s grandson is now 92. Lyon’s other son, Lyon Jr., passed away in 2020 at the age of 95. The Tyler family still maintains the President’s home, Sherwood Forest Plantation in Virginia. MIND BLOWN! The tallest man ever recorded was Robert Wadlow (1918-1940). He was 8 feet and 11 inches tall and wore size 37 shoes. He also has a connection to Manistee – on July 4, 1940, he made a professional appearance at the Manistee Forest Festival. A faulty brace irritated his ankle, leading to an infection. He was treated with a blood transfusion and surgery, but his condition worsened and he died in his sleep on July 15th. Stop by the Snyder’s Shoe Store to check out one of his shoes and a life-size cut out figure of Robert. *Laker Sports* The Varsity volleyball team lost to Marion last night 25-23, 18-25, 18-25, and 20-25.
