John Charles Carter was born on October 4, 1923. You may know him better as Charlton Heston! Join us to celebrate his 100th birthday!!!

Charlton Heston was well known as a civil rights activist and political activist. In the 1950s and 1960s, he was one of a handful of Hollywood actors to speak openly against racism and was an active supporter of the civil rights movement. Later he served five terms as president of the NRA. But most people know him as one of the century’s most popular actors. He appeared in almost 100 films. He starred in Ben Hur, Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, and many more. He was Moses in The Ten Commandments!

Will there be a birthday cake? Yes! Will there be Charlton Heston games? Yes! (“Identify the Movie from the Quote”) But most of all we will just be eating great food and talking to friends and neighbors.

What Should I Bring? This is a free event. But guests will bring a dish to share. Enough for 6 to 8 people. Main dish, dessert, salad, side dish, hors d oeuvres, etc. Food only. The hosts will provide plates, utensils, drinks, etc.

What Should I Wear? This will be an casual indoor event. But if you want to dress up as a Charlton Heston character or as anybody from one of his films, go for it!
