Friday was Teddy Roosevelt’s 154 birthday (born in 1858) and the students at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School in Burbank celebrated the day with a school-wide picnic and observance on their athletic field.
The day got off to a start with Burbank Mayor Dave Golonski joining the students in the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the Burbank Community Band playing of the National Anthem. The Burbank Sunrise Kiwanis helped arrange for the band.
The day was hosted by KFI radio talk show host Tim Conway Jr., who MC’d the event. Several students took to the microphone to deliver interesting facts about the 26th President of the United States.
