EAST VANCOUVER — Springwood Landing retirement community resident Jack Grauer turned 100 on Aug. 26. A celebration was held with his family and friends at 2 p.m. that day in the community’s back yard. Grauer was born on a farm in Sheridan, Ore., and lived there, as well as other towns in Oregon: McMinnville, Silverton, Salem and Grants Pass. He graduated from Beaverton High School in Beaverton, Ore., in 1938, spent three years in the Army Air Corps, and went to Oregon State University to study journalism and public speaking. Grauer has climbed Mount Hood “at least 40 times,” according to a news release, and published a book: Mount Hood: A Complete History.”
