A personal account: What this day meant to us
TAYLORVILLE — The announcement of World TB Day happening Tuesday brings the same memories and thoughts I’ve had for years on that subject.  Sylvia and I met on a blind date on New Year’s Eve, 1952.  She  came in from Detroit because the family in Cleveland arranged it as a help to one of their number who had lost his wife some months earlier but who had a very difficult time starting his life again.  The members arranged the evening, at a new nightclub, The Cucamonga Club.  It was featuring a band of Al Serifini, a man who actually worked with me at a B.F. Goodrich store.
