Nonagenarian celebrates birthday with family, friends

Friends and five generations of family members gathered ’round Margaret “Marge” Rooney on July 15 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Center, Bethlehem, to celebrate her 90th birthday.

The theme of the surprise party was “1927 was a very good year,” and the room was decorated accordingly.

Each table was adorned with sheets of paper listing fun facts from 1927, coasters displaying the year and PEZ candies and Kool-Aid packets, both of which were invented in 1927.
