Belated happy 80th birthday wishes to Don Witherspoon, who was honoured with a party Jan. 15 at the Devlin Hall.

The well-attended event was enjoyed by many, especially the guest of honour.

This was the second big event in a short time for Don, who also was honoured as La Vallee's senior of the year at the community Christmas party back in December.

Congratulations on both milestones, Don!

Robin's 2¢:

My bills are washed and the laundry is paid. The clothes are in the oven and the last load of dinner is in the dryer.

Who says I can't multi-task?
