Submitted by Hannah Hubbard

At the tender age of 4, the young Elbert Arnold Hubbard first came to Manson with his parents, Dr. I.G. and Edna, and his brother, Wes. For 3 summers they traveled by train from their Nokomis, Illinois, home to Manson, to enjoy the clear mountain air and check on the progress of the new orchard they had started. It wasn't until 1928 that they were finally able to make their move permanent.
On June 5, of this year, Elbert, Sr. will mark his 100th birthday: years filled with raising a family, apple orcharding, the construction of a packing shed, store building and several homes, hiking in the Cascade mountains, serving as a forest ranger in Lucerne, getting involved in ham radio, and, in his retirement years, motor-homing with Fran to Arizona and California.
Friends and family are invited to help him celebrate his 100th birthday on Saturday, June 7, at the Lake Chelan Boat Club, adjacent to Mill Bay Park in Manson. Come and share your stories and memories-potluck and barbecue between 1 and 5 p.m.
