Wordless Wednesday - Turning 90?

Editor's note: Today's post was written by  Sandra Gardner-Benward

Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society has this great little ritual of celebrating 90th birthdays of its members. And another one has turned 90 last month. At our February General Meeting we celebrated with cake, punch, and the birthday song.

                                                    Happy 90th Birthday
                          Frank WILPER
