Just because there is a pandemic going on, and everyone should be staying home, doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate your birthday. Though social distancing, Mrs. Vera LeBlanc (top photo, on left) still got to celebrate her 98th on Thursday, July 16, 2020 with a parade in her honor. Vera’s friends, family, church family, and members of the North Central Service Club, Inc., lined up in their vehicles and decorated them with balloons, signs and streamers to help celebrate such a wonderful lady.
Vera is a native of Pulaski, Virginia and relocated to Milwaukee more than 70 years ago. For more than 25 years, she worked in the Milwaukee Public School System as a psychological aide. In her free time she devoted herself to community service by mentoring young women. She was also a member of the North Central Service Club, Inc., for 50 years and helped to raise money to provide scholarships for Milwaukee-area high school girls.
Happy 98th Birthday Vera!
