One hundred and five years of age have slowed Bainbridge matriarch June Gregg, but have not stopped her enthusiasm. When Bainbridge reinstated its Memorial Day parade and celebration, she was front and center with Bainbridge Mayor Rocky Countryman, riding on a golf cart and waving her flag.
On June 1, 2016, Gregg was the center of attention when a carry-in lunch was held at the Bainbridge Senior Center in her honor, along with the dedication and acceptance of a 6-foot by 6-foot picture from SALT (Seniors & Law Enforcement Together). The picture was ordered from a mail order magazine for $35. When it came, it was in two pieces and needed to be matched and put together on a large piece of cardboard. It was used as a backdrop for Ross County Senior Citizens in Chillicothe for a veteran’s service.
The Bainbridge Senior Center is appreciative of all the work that Gree does for the center. She continues to be an active member of the Fall Festival of Leaves Committee and Bainbridge Historical Society.
She was front and center again on Tuesday, June 7, when the Fall Festival of Leaves honored her with a birthday cake and cards. Gregg said it was the only birthday cake she received this year. She has entertained visitors from Michigan and Georgia and, of course, numerous local visitors bearing cards, flowers and gifts. At last count, she had over 160 birthday cards.
