You Can Help Make a Langley Senior’s 100th Birthday Even Brighter!
Making it to 100 years of age is an incredible milestone that deserves a big birthday bash! Unfortunately, a Langley senior will celebrate becoming a centenarian without much of a crowd. John Kromhoff will turn 100 years old on June 24th, in a long-term care home with COVID-19 restrictions on the number of visitors allowed.
The retired realtor was born in New Westminster in 1921. “The average price of a lot at that time was about $300” he told the Langley Advance Times.
“They had hard rubber tires on cars and no television, and the roads all used to have names instead of numbers.” said Kromhoff (pictured on the far right)
In an effort to make his big day more special, his family is requesting help from the community. They are hoping to harness the power of the internet so Mr. Kromhoff receives lots of birthday cards! He tried social media once, but "didn't care for it", so send him a wish the (fittingly) old-fashioned way.
His mailing address is:
c/o 8888 202nd Street,
The soon-to-be 100 year old doesn’t think he’ll receive many cards, so help prove him wrong, in the best way possible! Send over good vibes to this deserving local senior, just look at that smile!
