Turning 50 should be fun- Come join the Celebration - The Golden Jubilee!

So those of you who have kindly followed my progression to my 50th birthday, I wanted to invite you to come celebrate the Golden Jubilee on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 in the Large Hall of the Rose Park Stake Center - 6 to 7:30 p.m.  It's an open house format so just come when it fits you best.   No gifts please, just bring your friendship!

You may ask, why make such a big deal about one's 50th Birthday?  Well I always enjoy a good party to start, but for me it was a milestone.  My father, Robert Christensen passed away from cancer at age 49, which I recognize puts me a year past him.  Whether I make it to 80 is always a good question and I don't want to publicly celebrate 60, so at 50, I plan to party!  (ok, so doing at a church, it's not likely to be the party some would anticipate!)  My mother, Verda Mae Fuller Christensen always loved a good party and I'm truly her son.  It's odd, but I'm odd or as Cathy has indicated on more than one occasion, "complicated"!

No one should feel guilty if they can't make it, but we would love to have you stop by and say hello.  Condolences are welcomed in the comment section below.   If somehow you read this or any notice and wondered if you're invited, consider yourself invited!  Turning 50 should be fun!


  1. Happy Birthday. Thanks for your friendship and example in many ways.

  2. Happy Birthday Carlton! I wont be able to make it on Wednesday evening, but wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed working with you over the years! Your support as a council member while I was at Northwest was amazing! Your dedication and service to your community is inspiring. Enjoy the day. Sincerely, Kay Cameron

  3. Hello Carlton! I echo Kay's thoughts above. I have always appreciated your kindness as I have seen you over the years. I wish you a very merry Birthday and look forward to seeing you soon. Quinn
