We had the pleasure and honor of having Mr. Marion Dunn join us this year for Fala Day. Mr. Dunn was one of the original “Push Boys” and mesmerized us with stories of his experience. In fact, if you watched the PBS series on the Roosevelts, you saw him as he discussed what a push boy did and their responsibilities.
One of the stories he told us was in response to a question: Then you really saw Fala? His answer; Oh yes, but I never touched him. The only people allowed to touch him was the President and Secret Service Agents.
