Little Known Taber Treasurers

Sylvania Products began in 1924, making radio tubes in the Emporium, PA area. By 1942, they had gotten into the photography flash business, and opened a plant in Montoursville for developing, testing, and manufacturing flashbulbs, and later flashcubes, used all over the world.
In 1947, at the Karlton Theater on Pine Street, Williamsport, approximately 20 young women competed in the Miss Greater Williamsport pageant. The winner was Dorothy Gresh, who graduated from Williamsport High School that very year. She went on to the Miss Pennsylvania pageant.
While many of the typical Memorial Day gatherings will be altered this year, nothing will stop the remembrance of those who gave all in service of their country - those like Paul B. Free and Billy O. Brandt.
