Victory YMCA Celebrates 100-Year-Old Member
Submitted by Donna Blake

VYMCA2 imageWednesday Dec. 19th, we celebrated the 100th Birthday of one of our dedicated members Charles Shelton. Charles likes to frequent the Victory Family YMCA three times a week to walk on the indoor track and when weather permits he plays golf 2-3 times a week with one of his sons. His son Martin said he quit playing golf with his dad because his father always beat him. Charles says following all his grandchildren’s activities keeps him active and young. It is such a blessing to have Charles in our community and YMCA family where the staff and members look forward to seeing him weekly. Charles was born in Virginia December 20, 1918 and was married to Mildred Overby Shelton for 80 years prior to her death. Charles has 6 children and now 75 Grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. His 5 living children are in a 50 mile radius of him and they visit regularly. He retired in 1981 from a building supply business. He is a devoted Christian and has attended the Lebanon Christian Church for over 70 years where he was also an Elder.
