Card of thanks

I want to thank my wonderful family and friends for making my 90th birthday so special.

Starting with Shannon, who decorated Lakeside Terrace for the party; the many cards, phone calls, gifts and flowers—topping it off with a super dinner at 5 Corners Café.

Char Pylman,

Old Forge
