Can you keep a secret? About a surprise party? Well, not too much of a secret, because the honoree will know about it before the event. You are invited to attend the 95th birthday party of May Bill, beloved resident of the 600 block of Beloit for many years.
May’s daughter Janet Fink, a copy of her mother, cordially invites anyone who knows May to attend the party at the Community Center on Nov. 7 from 1 until 4 p.m.
So Janet won’t be overwhelmed, please let her know if you plan to attend by calling 847-894-6808 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But even if you forget to call, Janet and May will be happy to welcome you to the party. See you there?!
Congratulations to newly engaged couple Brittany Severino and Scott McAdam. The young people became engaged on Aug. 8 at the zoo, and a family party was held to celebrate the event a bit later.
We all know what Scott’s profession is (if you don’t, you’ll know when you see those trucks with “McAdam” on the side driving by); Brittany is a veterinarian technician. We wish them a long and happy life together.
