The Jefferson Township Board of Trustees in Montgomery County, Ohio, recently celebrated Benjamin “Bennie” Grissom’s 104th birthday, a member of the Ethan Temple church in Clayton, Ohio. The Board of Trustees also recognized Grissom for fostering self-sustaining solutions beyond urban and rural community development in the township. U.S. Congressman Michael R. Turner joined the celebration by testifying what a remarkable milestone this was, and how many people aspire to reach this age, but few do so.
