Rep. Grimm Recognizes 102nd Birthday of S.I. Resident

STATEN ISLAND, NY - Today, Rep.  Michael G. Grimm (R-NY) visited Staten Island resident, Joseph LaGuardia at the New Dorp Beach Friendship Club in celebration of his 102nd birthday, which is tomorrow.  Rep. Grimm visited in the New Dorp club in August, and promised to return for Mr. LaGuardia’s birthday.  

“Joe LaGuardi may be turning 102, but he’s got the spirit of a 42 year old!” said Grimm. “We can all learn a lot from him on how to live each day with a positive outlook on life and a smile on our face. Joe is truly an inspiration to us all, and it certainly brightened my day to join in the celebration of him turning 102 years young!”

Mr. LaGuardia turns 102 tomorrow, October 2nd, and tells the congressman he will go on a helicopter ride on Wednesday. When Rep. Grimm asked what his secret is, Mr. LaGuardia said to treat everyday like a walk in the park.
