Hundreds turned out on Monday at Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove for the Teddy Roosevelt Show. Joe Wiegard as President Teddy Roosevelt kept the crowd laughing and entertained as he shared the life story of the 43-year-old who became the youngest President in our Nation's history.
Mr. Weigard who has even made White House appearances, put on a similar performance at Walker County schools before going to Morning Pointe.
He also presented an official teddy bear to Patty Parks, U.S. Navy, Retired, and member of the American Legion Desmond Doss Post 257 during his performance. Wiegard said the bear represented his recognition of the American Legion as America's and largest military veteran support organization. Ms. Parks is a life member of the American Legion and a Charter Member of Post 257. She served as the post's first Adjutant and for several years as post historian.
