The gang at Tacoma took a day trip to Eastern Washington. The first stop was for donuts and coffee at the Cle Elem bakery. We then stopped for a factory tour of Applets and Cotlets. Yum! We then headed to lunch at Gustav’s in Leavenworth for a day of sightseeing and shopping!

Happy 100th Birthday Tony!

This month we celebrated a very special birthday at Merrill Gardens. Tony at Merrill Gardens of Santa Maria turned 100!

049_(2)

Tony has lived quite the life. He was born on October 10th and in 1913 he immigrated from Mexico to California. A few years later in 1939, he married his sweetheart Mary Hernandez. The couple celebrates their 75th anniversary next year!

Tony and Mary have one handsome son, four beautiful daughters and nine grandchildren. In his early 30’s, Tony started working in the maintenance department at Allen Hancock College. “You name it, I’ve done it!” says Tony. He even worked at a dairy farm in the Santa Maria Valley.

Today, Tony, Mary and their silver Chihuahua mix Cindy are retired and live at Merrill Gardens of Santa Maria.

Tony is an avid Dodger fan and loves keeping tabs on his favorite team. We celebrated with a Dodger themed cake and party! Here are a few shots from the festivities. Congratulations Tony. We wish you many more happy days to come!
