Happy 104th to Alvin Sommer!

Howard County’s oldest resident, Alvin Sommer turned 104 on Thursday, Sept. 30 with a party in the afternoon. There was birthday cake and cookies for residents of Cresco Assisted Living, veterans and friends of the centenarian.
In addition, the group was recorded singing the birthday song, which Vickie Grube was sending to Good Morning America. 
Legion Commander Yslas found out a party was also held at noon. She told Sommer, “At 104, you can have as many birthdays as you want!”
“I never figured I’d see 104,” Sommer said. He added he likes it at Assisted Living. He’s been living at the Evans Home complex, either in a condo or the apartment.
