|Mark Twain impersonator Rod Rawlings with birthday boy Donald Thompson|
Sounds like Donald Thompson's 100th birthday was a big ol' time for the World War II veteran.
Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee celebrated the milestone in style for its Daybreak Adult Day Care Center client Wednesday at Renaissance on 9th.
The birthday boy received a Donald Thompson Day proclamation from County Commissioner Vanessa Baugh, a letter of congrats from Congressman Vern Buchanan’s special assistant Gary Tibbets, and a proclamation from the Florida House of Representatives arranged by state Rep. Jim Boyd.
Thompson is a Navy veteran who saw combat in the Pacific, enjoys card playing, western novels and has been a Meals on Wheels PLUS client since 2005.
