Gerrit Terpsma, a lifetime Republican, turned 100 years old on May 6, 2018, and we celebrated his birthday and his loyalty to the Whatcom Republican Party at our Committee Meeting on May 12th at Meridian High School. Along with his two daughters, Diane Gascon and Kathy Weeks, we were delighted to have had the opportunity to welcome and honor Gerrit as he turned 100 years old and to recognize his continued support for the Republican Party. Luanne Van Werven, 42nd Legislative Representative, was on hand to welcome her dear friend to our meeting.
Gerrit was presented with a Laser Point “Keep America Great 2020” lighted pen and a “Keep America Great 2020” hat commemorating his time with the Whatcom Republican Party Committee Members. We wish Gerrit all the best as he begins his 100th year.
