Lemuel Parker is not your ordinary senior citizen. He has been a member of the West Blocton Volunteer Fire Department for 75 years. A member of the Masonic Lodge for 62 years and volunteering as a poll worker for nearly 50 years. Today he celebrated his 88th birthday at the Alternative School in West Blocton, a Bibb County voting precinct, taking time out from the poll when his wife and daughter brought over a cake. Happy Birthday Mr. Parker, and thanks for your unselfish service to the community.
