The new kind of birthday party

Mildred Jackson Shepard’s 90th birthday was Friday, April 24. To celebrate such a milestone, the family usually throws a big party, but the coronavirus pandemic has changed all that. At best, well-wishers have to extend birthday greetings as they drive by and stay in their vehicles. That’s what Mrs. Shepard’s friends did Friday afternoon. Folks drove by, some blew the horns, others shouted greetings, and all waved. By the way, the party was a surprise to Mrs. Shepard, shown waving at her friends.
