Age may only be a number, but moving that number into the tripple digits can turn an average birthday into a parish-wide proclamation.
Herbert Carter Sr. of Lesttworth, La is turned 100 years-old today! The life-long Louisiana resident was honored two days ago when Pointe Coupee parish designated today as Herbert Carter Day.
This father of nine lives a life considered more active than someone much younger than he. Just a month ago he spent his vacation time in Cozumel, Mexico. Traveling, playing bingo and attending church are just a few of the ways he keeps busy. The rest of his time is spent with family, which includes thirty-six grandchildren, twenty-nine grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren.
We here at NBC33 News wish him a happy birthday.
