Steve Hit the Big 5-0!

Our staff surprised Steve Parr with 50th birthday party this morning. Oh no, oh no, Steve hit the big 5-0! That is right, Steve Parr turns 50 today.
We started the day by greeting him at the main entrance with a cane and a wheelchair. Ginger, Tammy and Sharon distributed multi-colored footprints throughout the building. Each set of colored footprints provided Steve directions to the bathroom, his office, my office and the kitchen. Sharon also printed each staff member a new name tag with a large font so he could read them easily. The best item of the day was his name tag. It read, “My name is Steve Parr. If you find me wondering around aimlessly please call my wife, Anita at…”

During lunch we each gave him a special gift. You must ask him about some of those gifts. Then we enjoyed cake and ice cream. We had a ball, of course, at Steve’s expense. But as expected, he took each jab in his usual magnanimous manner.

Part of his birthday surprise included some trivia questions from 1957.
See how well you answer the questions I asked:

  • Who was President of the United States in 1957?
  • Who was Vice-President?
  • Who was the Governor of Alabama?
  • Who won the World Series?
  • Who won the NCAA Football Championship?
  • Who won the NCAA Basketball Championship?
  • What first-ever “family-oriented” television show premiered on CBS?
  • What device was invented to help heart patients?
  • The Russians introduced the Space Age with the launching of what rocket?
  • What was the cost of a first class stamp?
Here are your answers:
  • Dwight D. Eisenhower
  • Richard M. Nixon
  • James E. Folsom
  • Milwaukee Braves
  • Auburn Tigers
  • North Carolina Tar Heels
  • “Leave It to Beaver”
  • Pacemaker
  • Sputnik I
  • 3 cents

My, my time how times have changed!

When you see Steve Parr tomorrow night at CrossPoint, tell him happy birthday!
