Happy Birthday, Jo-Ann MacPhail

Jo-Ann and her kids - Peter, Victoria and Mark

Jo-Ann MacPhail celebrated her 60th birthday party at Riverview Community Center on Sunday afternoon. What a great time! Many of her family and friends were there to enjoy the day with Jo-Ann, even her gang of artistic friends from the LEAP program.

I knew without a doubt it would be beautifully decorated and that she would have a few surprises. She had a photo display of her as a young girl, her graduation, wedding day and family photos along with two delicious cakes.

She was definitely Queen for a Day as she dawned a tiara that said “Happy Birthday” given to her by a couple of her guests.

For a lady that gives so much of her time and talent to the community, it was wonderful to see her having such a great time. I am sure she will enjoy all the thoughtful little gifts, cards with notes and many colourful balloons over this next week as she remembers this happy day.
