February 29, 2020 12:20 pm A Leap Year Legend
Written by – Marianne Riess
If you knew Fred Wierdsma, founder of the Putnam Indian Field School, February 29th took on a special meaning. It was his birthday, and it explained him. Having one birthday every four years kept him young at heart and in attitude throughout his life. Today is the first leap year since he died. We miss the fun he always provided everyone whose life he touched.
Happy 84/21 in Heaven.
