Thank you to everyone that came out and helped “surprise” Claude on Saturday night for his birthday. He turned 70 on Sunday but the kids pulled together a party for him on Saturday night at the Lagrone Farm where he grew up. It was great time, “fiesta style” with fajitas, a pinata and Claude even wore a sombrero.
