Club Member Louis Robert Sicard turned 94 on December 12, 2018.  Louie joined the club because of his passion for collecting MATCHBOX. Born in 1924, Louis spent his teen years in France, hiding out with his brother and always on the run, after the Gestapo arrested their father and put him in a concentration camp. Both brothers had the Resistance prepare false documents for them, so that if either were eventually arrested, the Gestapo would not be able to link them as being brothers. Louis has been a bedrock to many in our club and we wish him happy birthday, with many more to come!!! ‚Äč
