Eagle celebrates 100 years


Gallia County Commissioner and President Harold Montgomery reads a proclamation celebrating the 100th birthday of Erma Parsons Eagle, who was born Dec. 14, 1915, and hands her a Gallia County flag. Her birthday was celebrated a little later to give friends and family the chance to organize and accommodate Eagle’s needs. “Vinton Veterans” Larry Shong and Debbie Rhodes helped organize the event as Vinton Elementary school colleagues, friends and family gathered to celebrate with Eagle. Eagle served as a cook at Vinton Elementary for 35 years until she retired in 1970, where she was well known for the “best rolls ever.” Eagle received another such honor from the Gallia County Senior Center.
