Lander’s oldest resident turns 106, rides 4 wheeler for b-day!

(Lander, Wyo.) – Lander’s oldest resident, Leola Dollard Reschke, celebrated her 106th birthday today on a 4 wheeler!

Leola loves to celebrate her birthdays by doing something adventurous. On her 100th birthday, she rode a horse. For her 101st birthday she was the parade marshal of the 4th of July parade. This year she requested a 4 wheeler ride from her friend, John Larsen! A group of employees and friends gathered to watch her enjoy her ride!
