The rain may have been coming down on Saturday, Feb. 27, but all of the wide smiles seemed to bring a bit of sunlight to one corner of Carol Drive.
John Hecht turned 100 years old on Saturday, and to celebrate approximately 100 people participated in a drive-by birthday celebration for the newly-turned centenarian. Hecht sat outside under the cover of a tent, waving as vehicle after vehicle passed by. Both drivers and passengers offered their bright smiles and yelled well-wishes from their opened windows, while a few even brought along some homemade signs congratulating Hecht on his achievement.
The Cheshire Fire and Police Departments also stopped by to say “Happy Birthday," including a few fire engines that maneuvered down Carol Drive.
