George Mosebar of Redmond recently marked his 101st birthday with a celebration at the Redmond Senior Center.

Born March 26, 1917 in Yakima, the centenarian eventually moved to a farm in Mabton, Washington. He moved to Redmond about 18 or so years ago.

Mosebar has volunteered at the RSC for more than 15 years, working in the kitchen to assist with serving the daily lunches. He retired from volunteering last year but has remained close to the hearts of those at the senior center.

It was the friends Mosebar made through volunteering who organized the party in his honor. He is known for his quick wit and wry sense of humor as well as his generous heart and kind nature.

Prior to volunteering at the senior center, Mosebar spent his working years in farming and real estate.
