Her Mother Rode the Polish Community Float in 1930

My mother, Bernice Lukazewski, rode on the Polish community float in the 1930 Rose Festival. She was a pretty girl of about 21 years old.

She won the ticket sales contest and got to ride on the float from the Polish community in North Portland, centered around St. Stanislaus Catholic Church.

Mother was born in 1908 in a house on Skidmore Street in North Portland. She married in 1932 and died in 1979. Her husband, my father, was Harold Lindsay, a Portland small business owner (with partner, CJ Lindsay).
