Niagara Area Historical Society volunteers recently revived a 20-year-old wooden art piece made by the late Bob Sparks. The wooden silhouette is of the iconic photograph of the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima in World War II. The original wood was repainted in black by Judy Sanicki, with a new plaque of the words, “Lest We Forget” created by Bruce Redmond. From left are Bob Spark’s daughter, Judy Sparks; his son, Bob Sparks; and his widow, Juanita Sparks; along with society members and volunteers Bruce Redmond, Jerry Morin and Judy Sanicki.
