Happy 100th Birthday, Louie!

I heard this story at a meeting yesterday and wanted to share.  Louie Reinhart celebrated his 100th birthday with family and friends at  the Snyder Village Retirement Community in March.  Louie is a Cub fan and his daughter, Julie Harper, wrote the Cubs asking for a ball  or souvenir to celebrate Louie's centennial.  The Cubs did better---they invited Louie to opening day.  This year Wrigley Field is celebrating 100 years.  On April 4th, Louie celebrated with thousands of other Cub fans.  Happy Birthday, Louie!
