The happiest birthday
I was honored today to be included in the 100th birthday celebration of Los Gatos resident Russell Wintle! I was hoping to have the opportunity to participate in someone’s centennial party, and so I was pleased to receive the invitation from Faith Lutheran Church. Last week I spent a couple of days at the statewide meeting of sanitation districts learning what’s new in sewers and wastewater treatment [don’t be jealous just because we electeds get all the fun], and former Campbell Mayor Don Burr told me he only had one centurion during three terms as mayor. It’s a rare privilege and I thank the Wintle family for letting me be part of it. I had not met Mr. Wintle before today but it turned out he worked at GE the same time as my mother and remembered her. A small and happy world.
