Special to the Progress-Times
George Powell was surprised with a party at the Eupora Lodge on Sept. 13 for his 99th birthday. Family and friends gathered around to show their love for this wonderful man.
After falling and breaking his hip last year, Bro. George has recovered, and is using a walker to get around. Even though his eyesight is about gone, and his ears don’t work as well either, his mind is still sharp and he does not forget a thing.
Ever proficient in his Masonic and Eastern Star work, Bro. George will tell you quickly what’s right and what’s not.
His military career left a lasting impression on him and he loves to tell about those years, or any subject you wish to discuss. His knowledge is far reaching and if you don’t know this kind and pleasant gentleman, you’re missing out on a blessing, AND many history lessons.
Happy 99th birthday, Bro. George!
