Circle I women, Miller First Presbyterian Church, hosted the February monthly birthday party Monday afternoon. Helping were Ann Douglas, Mary Johnson, Sue Jones, Tyann Jones, SuAnne Meyer, Wanda Stevens and Nancy Williams. They served angel food cake topped with cherry pie filling and whipped topping.

Danica Fanning and SuAnne Meyer provided entertainment. The two led residents in singing “yesteryear” songs, followed by Danica singing and telling about her trip to New York City, where she sang at Carnegie Hall. What a blessing to hear her. SuAnne accompanied on piano.

Each birthday resident received a birthday card and gift bags of mixed nuts, combs, tissues and small candy bars. It was a great party, and we appreciate the Circle I members for hosting it.
