Flint area doctor celebrates 100th birthday

FLINT, Mich. - A special celebration was held this morning at the Flint Institute of Music.

Monday morning people gathered to celebrate the 100th birthday of Doctor Russel Sandberg.

Doctor Sandberg has been an active member of the Retired Men's Fellowship for more than 30 years.

He credits his active lifestyle as one of the reasons for his good health.

"I exercise every day, I did, I walked three miles a day. I kept that up for a long time, I think that probably helped,” said Dr. Sandberg.

The doctor practiced medicine up until 1986.
