Happy 90th Birthday to Leon Van Patten, Searcy AR

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

 

 Leon Van Patten

Everyone was there!  His friends, his relatives, his associates from the Historical Society where he has served on the Board as Treasurer for so many years.  He is now an honorary Lifetime Member of the White County Historical Society.

He stood in the entry of his daughter's house and greeted everyone as they came in, a gentleman dressed in suit and tie and being gracious to us all.  The family and the Historical Society served punch and cookies.

And what a great selection for a birthday picture to put on the invitation.  This little boy sitting on the top of an old car with a dirty face!  When it came across as email, I couldn't help but study it.  It needs to be sent out to all my friends on ActiveRain!

Barbara, How Fun!  It sounds like he has led an active life.  We celebrated my Dad's 90th birthday just 1 year ago and his secret is that active life also.  I guess we can learn something from their example.

Jim, wasn't he a cute kid!

Duane, I love the picture too.  But isn't that a modern looking house in the background?
