On Sunday, April 6, 2014, Millwood lived up to its motto – “The street where old friends meet”. An unscientific survey of the attendees at George and Kathleen Roberts’ 70th wedding anniversary party verified that the attendees were seeing and visiting people they had not seen in years.
In addition to visiting and catching up with old friends, there were folks dancing the afternoon away. The 250 plus attendees covered a wide range of ages from one year old to 90 years of age, came from Lincoln and St. Charles counties to points beyond Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, and ranged from childhood friends to new friends at TACOA’s Coffee Talk. Rather than bring gifts, George and Kathleen asked that people bring an item for the food pantry. Fun was had by all who attended.
