Bir thdays



George Vaillancourt of Kennebunk celebrated his 100th birthday with friends and family at a birthday celebration held at Atria Kennebunk Senior Living. The day was full of surprise, fun and lively entertainment by pianist John D’Ambrosio. Vaillancourt was born in Westbrook. His father was a weaver at the Haskell Silk Mill while his mother worked as a housewife. He had one older brother named Charles. George worked as a lawyer for the Justice Department in Washington D.C. He met his wife, whom also worked for the government, later in life on an assignment. George served in the Army during WW II. His primary station was in Fort Virginia. He served as a private first class for two years and was stationed in London during the bombing. He loved traveling through Europe, going to the opera at the Metropolitan in New York and the symphony in Washington. After the passing of his loving wife, Mary Ellen, he decided to move back to Maine and “return home.” He loves watching the Red Sox and his favorite pasttime is relaxing in the living room while reading the newspaper. George has been at Atria Kennebunk for 13 years, making him the resident with the most longevity.
