Not only were friends and family celebrating a wonderful Memorial Day to honor those who gave their lives, but they were also celebrating the special life of Clara Reed. Reed celebrated her 107th birthday at a party hosted by Dora Brooks and Herman Daniel at 802 Wright Ave., May 25.

Friends and family stopped by throughout the day to wish her a happy birthday and special friends, Sen. Floyd Nicholson and wife Mamie, stopped in to wish her the happiest.
