County Fair announces Senior Citizen of the Year

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- Besides the 4Hers, goats, and the Ferris wheel, the Olmsted County Fair hosted some other special guests today.

It was Senior Citizens' Day, and many showed up for this luncheon, as well as to hear a special award.

Fair officials announced the Olmsted County Senior Citizen of the year.

The 2008 man of the year has lived in Rochester for nearly 40 years, is a retired IBMer, loves to play tennis, and donates his time at the Senior Center.

Tom Adams, Senior Citizen of the Year, says, "We teach computer classes to seniors, all the way from seniors who don't know what a mouse is except the one that scurries across the floor, up through digital photo editing."

Congratulations, Tom Adams, on being this year's Senior Citizen of the Year!
