Life of Babe Didrikson Zaharias is topic of Sanborn meeting

Denise Reichard will portray sports star "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias in a presentation of “Olympics and Life” at a special program of the Sanborn Area Historical Society at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Didrikson Zaharias, named the top woman athlete of the first half of the 20th century, was a track and field medal winner in the Olympics before becoming a champion golfer. Her career was cut short by her death from cancer at age 42 in 1956.

The free event will take place at the Sanborn Fire Hall, 5811 Buffalo St., Sanborn. It is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
