Nathaniel Vinson of Barnwell celebrated his 100th birthday on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

Family and friends, some from as far away as Alabama, helped Vinson celebrate his milestone birthday with a party at the Gail Reyes Senior Center in Barnwell. There was food and a short program.

Vinson, who was born on June 10, 1917, has lived in Barnwell since 2008 when he and his wife of 71 years, Mary, moved from Detroit, Michigan to be closer to family.

The Vinsons have one daughter and son-in-law, Wendolyn and Sammie Robinson of Barnwell, as well as one grandson, Dakar (Tammie) Robinson.
