A large crowd of family, friends and elected officials came out to the American Legion Post 1451 to celebrate Wilson resident Bob Burtwell's 100th birthday.
Having been born on Nov. 11, 1911, Bob is among a very small group to have seen 11-11-11 twice. As a spry centenarian, Bob enjoyed his party, entertaining the crowd with anecdotes from his life after eating a great dinner and cutting his cake. He then accepted awards from the local politicians in attendance. (photos by Wayne Peters)
