More than 100 people turned out this evening for a dinner celebrating Guido Corriero's 102nd birthday at the Woods at Canco in Portland. He is the oldest resident of this independent living home, but you'd never know it judging by his quick wit and good looks.
Here he reacts as Enrichment Coordinator Angie Langley brings him a slice of birthday cake. His daughter-in-law Sharon Corriero looks on with a smile.
He had a steady stream of well wishers at the party, including Portland Mayor Nick Mavodones, seen here shaking Guido's hand.
Naomi Moore of Allagash Brewing Company even dropped by to give him a 24 pack of Allagash White and a set of Allagash glasses and other merchandise. She told me there is a photo on the wall at the Great Lost Bear that shows Guido enjoying an Allagash White at the Portland watering hole.
The party was capped off with a fun bluegrass performance by the Saccarappa Boys of Westbrook.
I'll have lots of additional details about the party, plus many more photos, in the Jan. 23 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram.
Until then, I hope to see you out and about.Tweet
