John Glenn’s 90th Birthday




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.
