I’m sure we’ve all received cute birthday party invitations. Just look at this sweet one from my uncle’s baby book:
Did you catch the date? 1934. The heart of the Great Depression. Hard to imagine.
But, although we’ve all been invited to children’s birthday party, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been to a party like this that was later written up in the social pages of the local newspaper.
Well, be that as it may, Miss Mary Lou Hellman’s “4th birthday anniversary” party was written up in the paper and here it is:
I’m happy to know that Mary Lou’s mother served “a delectable menu” and that “interesting games” were played.
I daresay this was the first time my 4 year old uncle’s name was published in the paper: Kenneth Dimmick.
What a hoot!
