DANFORTH ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Dear Friends,
 New Year’s blessings to you!
 On February 12th Salome will turn 95 years young.  We think that is a good reason for a party!  So we are planning a birthday celebration for this amazing lady!

 Hilltop Manor
 42 Elliott St, Cambridge, ON

All family and friends of Salome most welcome!  No gifts please, your presence is gift enough. Cards and note would be much appreciated.
 Please contact Mary Jane G. by Feb. 5 if you plan to be there so we know how many people to expect.
 Peace,
 Martha and Paul Snyder for the family.
