As many of our Tennis Club members know, a fellow resident, Mr. Bernard (Bernie) Peters has been playing tennis with the Men’s 3.0 – 3.4 group for several years.
But perhaps what club members may not know – especially after a zinging, angled return tennis shot hit by Bernie – is the fact that Bernie celebrated his 92nd birthday with family and friends in Sedona AZ this past Sunday, March 22.
And yesterday, March 24, Bernie’s “second family”, held a celebration to honor Bernie, something they have done for three consecutive years.
In case you are not able to read the words-in-frosting on his birthday cake, it states: “Happy Birthday, Bernie - # 92! Any questions?”
All too often Bernie’s tennis group hears this question shouted across the net from Bernie, as yet again, Bernie angles a shot, changes pace on a serve, or confounds one of us into embarrassment as he scores another point!
You may be interested in knowing that Bernie will be featured in the June 2015 issue of the View.
So once again, here’s to you, Bernie – and we all wish you many more!
