105 year old Ashland woman gets front seat for Obama event

leave a comment »

For one local woman today’s visit by President Barack Obama was something she never thought she would see in her lifetime. And her lifetime is impressive.

Among the small group of 20 or so people that will get to hear and speak to the President will be Virginia Shelton, a 105 year old woman from Ashland.  Ms. Shelton told our Tara Morgan just a few minutes ago that from the moment Mr. Obama was elected that all she wanted was just one chance to meet him.

She will get that chance this afternoon.

Ms. Shelton has already had a little brush with the White House. First Lady Michelle Obama sent her a letter on her 105th birthday, which was September 8th.
