Harold Tubbs of Toledo had a surprise guest at his recent 100th birthday party.
Mayor Mike Bell stopped by to wish Tubbs “Happy Birthday.”
The mayor has a family member at the facility and heard about the party, said Sam Lee, admissions director at Heartland Holly Glen, a rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility in West Toledo where Tubbs resides.
“Mr. Tubbs is a very popular gentleman at Heartland Holly Glen and is a delight to be around,” Lee said. “He was delighted to be the center of the festivities and his favorite part was being greeted unexpectedly by Mayor Bell. He was really excited.”
Tubbs grew up in South Toledo and graduated from Libbey High School.
He is an active participant in bingo, trivia, musical performances and exercise groups, Lee said. He also regularly reads aloud to other residents.
