Had a great time today at a couple of events that are typical of what a mayor does on a Saturday.
This morning, I joined former Mayor Walker, Councilman Butler, City TreeMeister Mike Lumbis and other volunteers in planting some trees at North Elementary School. These folks do this several times a year and its one of those unmentioned things that good people do.
Later I attended a 100th birthday party at Centennial Apartments.
Caroline Sayre....mom of our Fire Chief Milt Sayre rolled the odometer this month and her neighbors threw quite a party.
Caroline enjoyed the day and has a sharp sense of humor.
When I presented her a First Citizen Award I commented to the crowd that I hope I look that good when I am 100.
Caroline quickly chimed in, "you have to look good to begin with."
They do a nice job at Centennial and it looks like Caroline will be helping celebrate her neighbors birthdays for some time to come.
Happy Birthday Caroline !
Later tonight I plan to attend calling hours for David Lane in Dexter. That story is so sad and I am sure the lines will be long today and tomorrow.
Today the General Brown Lions won the Class C football championship in a game dedicated to the memory of Trooper Lane, who died Wednesday in a traffic mishap.
