It was back in March of 1955. A movie star by the name of Ronnie Reagan was crossing the country, promoting his new TV show.
He made an appearance at the General Electric plant in nearby Tell City. Someone there suggested that he check out Santa Claus Land, located in a neighboring county.
Back then, it wasn’t a big deal to change a star’s schedule on the spur of the moment.
That’s Ronald Reagan with Will’s two grandfathers, Louis J. Koch and “Santa Jim” Yellig.
Today, one year following President Reagan’s passing seems to be the appropriate day to share this photo.
