World War II veteran, Thad Pollard, (left in cap) and his son Gary Pollard (right) managed to break a Toymakers of East Lake record Saturday by cutting out over 500 wooden toys on the bandsaws.
Toymakers is an all volunteer organization that will make and donate over 14,000 toys to sick and needy children this year. Thad served in the Seabees in WWII and to this day maintains their motto: “The difficult we do now, the impossible takes a little longer”. Thad and Gary exemplify the energy and commitment shared by this wonderful group of volunteers ranging in age from 13 to 97. We are honored to have three WWII Vets of the Greatest Generation. Here you can see why!
