Born in 1934?
If so, you and your significant other are invited to attend the annual 1934 Birthday Party Bash at Gansner Park in Quincy Sunday, Aug. 21 at 2 p.m.
Claiming 1934 was a vintage year, the late Bob Melms started this yearly celebration nearly two decades ago and it continues to get bigger and better every year.
As always, festivities include a potluck; people bring a dish to share, plus their own entrée to barbecue. Co-hosts this year, Fred and Susan Howe and Barry and Peggy Bailey, will make arrange for the hot barbecue, ice chest for your drinks, paper plates and plastic utensils.
If you want to participate in a birthday gift exchange, be sure to bring a gift.
Born in the Depression and raised during World War II, the individuals in the group closely identify with each other, regardless of where they were born in the United States, or their demographic or socioeconomic background.
Couples and singles that celebrate 1934 as their birthday year have enjoyed seeing this gathering each August become a tradition.
According to John Gallagher, one of several people instrumental in keeping the party an annual success, this generation encountered a common set of challenges that developed within each of them a drive, enthusiasm and self-discipline that resulted in a common set of core values.
