"I remember Pop as a fire fighter along with his brother (my Uncle Oldrich A. Tokar). On December 31st. They would always
ring the fire siren and clang the bell on top of the fire hall to ring in the new Year.
When I was old enough to come along, they would take me to the upper room of the fire hall and I would help Pop toll in the new year in ... fond memories
of years gone by. Thanks for the memories"
