A happy birthday is going out to a local, as she celebrated her big day with friends and family from all over.
But it’s not just any old birthday we’re talking about here, as Bertha Mee prepares to break through the century mark and come through singing. With the party hosted at the St. Paul’s Anglican Church hall in Shawville, almost 300 people came out to wish her well.
