Whitney (Sam) Rowland celebrates 90th birthday

Whit and Evie Rowland, 40-year residents of Del Mar, are in town to celebrate Whit’s 90th birthday. They have been living in the Sonoma wine country, where their daughter, Nancy, lives.

Whit retired from General Atomic as manager of Safety and Accidents in 1985. He is a very knowledgeable wine connoisseur and has served at many wine tastings in this area.

Evie was a much-loved secretary at Del Mar Shores, Del Mar Hills, and Del Mar Heights elementary schools.

Their daughter Sandy and husband Mike and two sons are here from Baltimore, also, in addition to Nancy.

A birthday luncheon with close friends will be celebrated at L’Auberge Restaurant.
