Louis Moore and Moon Pie turn 100

Happy 100th birthday to Louis Moore, a robust farmer on Fodderstack Road whose ancestors settled in Rappahannock County in the early 1800s.

Louis, a lifelong resident of the county, turned a century old on July 2, and as you can see in this photograph among his gifts was a box of Moon Pies, the tasty American confection born one year before Louis in 1917. Louis’ daughter, Dorothy, says her dad’s secret to longevity is “being in a good mood twenty-four hours a day.” Otherwise, “He always says, ‘You never get too old to learn.’”
