Live music by Classic Country, cake and ice cream were provided. Mary also entertained everyone by playing the piano. The day before the party, Mary, Karen and Aleta traveled to Evansville to visit with Mary’s sister-in-law, Margaret (Treumpy) Ahlf and Mary’s niece Patty (Ahlf) Britt. The family thanks the EUCC Women’s Guild for providing beverages and for help around the church kitchen. Mary turned 90 April 25.
