Happy Birthday John Glenn!
John Glenn turned 90 years old on July 18, 2011 and his hometown friends and admirers could not let the special occasion pass by without a celebration. That evening, over a hundred community members gathered in front of his boyhood home for typical birthday party traditions. A short program which opened with a beautiful rendition of “The National Anthem” concluded with everyone singing “Happy Birthday”. After a group picture was taken, guests were invited in to see the main floor of the home. Everyone was then invited to sign a birthday card and have a cupcake and lemonade. Although Senator and Mrs. Glenn were unable to attend, they sent their best wishes to all. Along with the card and picture, the Glenns were sent a DVD of the program.
