This kid! Wow he gets better every time he plays. Brandon 'Taz' Niederauer
Neil and his family wintered in New Smyrna Beach, Florida from Dec. 26, 1951 to May 1952. This was shortly after Neil was recovering from his attack of polio. Neil's parents thought the sunshine and fresh air would aid in Neil's recovery. He and his older brother Bob attended Faulkner Street Elementary School during this time. The family would return to New Smyrna Beach the following year but for a briefer stay. They lived in a community called Coronado Beach. When the family returned to Omemee Neil finished his year at Omemee Public School where he had also begun his school year.
