This month two milestones occurred: resident Walter Balaban celebrated his 100th birthday, and he became the first resident at Twin Cedars to turn 100. Twin Cedars threw him a large birthday party celebration where roughly thirty five friends and family members from the Ukrainian community attended. The Ukrainian celebration party involved singing Ukrainian songs and enjoying traditional cake along with a visit from two priests from St. Voladyonyr Ukrainian Catholic Church in Glen Spey, NY who gave a traditional Ukrainian invocation. Mr. Balaban was presented with many recognitions from Twin Cedars Owner Tamara Singer including letters from President Obama, Pennsylvanias Governor Corbett, Pennsylvanias Senate, the NY State Assembly, Sullivan County Legislature and the Lumberland Township Board. During Mr. Balabans toast he announced to his friends and family members Im ready to go for my second 100 years.
