On January 1st Iver B. celebrated his 100th birthday at Manor House Senior Living in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Iver lived in Norway for his first 9 months when his parents decide to move to Longville, Minnesota. There, they bought a farm and raised all sorts of animals, including, horses, cattle. chickens.
He worked on the farm and eventually joined the Army. He was discharged from the Army on his birthday. He is an only child and never married. On January 3rd Manor House hosted a party in his honor with lots of friends and family. Iver is a great addition to our Manor House family. Below are some of the pictures from the event!
