Birthday Wishes

Hundreds Attend Sulphur Civic Leader Lenell Portman’s 99th Birthday

When you’ve been around a very long time, you inevitably accumulate many friends and family members. That is certainly true for Sulphur’s Lenell Portman, who celebrated her 99th birthday Saturday, June 3 at the Artesian Hotel. The banquet room was filled with a crowd of well-wishers estimated at about 250 folks.
