Happy Birthday to Cecil Clark! Clark, a resident of Buda, will be 102 years old on Friday, Oct. 24. Clark can always be found at the Onion Creek Senior Activity Center playing a game of “42” where he is usually the winner. You can also bet that he will be in his deer stand on the first day of deer season AND he always gets his buck.
