Washington C.H. resident June Milstead was “all shook up” when about 200 friends and family greeted her at a surprise 90th birthday party at the Southside Church of Christ Saturday, Aug. 30. Family from as far away as Georgia came to be part of the festivities.
The party featured a pasta buffet and an array of gourmet cupcakes from Two Scoops of Sugar. The décor of the church’s family life center was 50’s style with pink and black balloons, lovingly decorated by her family. A floral centerpiece created by Keith Hart of Robin’s Flowers in Greenfield graced the family table.
The highlight of the event was when Elvis (Tom Rice, professional Elvis impersonator from Columbus) took the stage. He performed several of the King’s big hits. The crowd loved it and Elvis received a standing ovation at the end of his repertoire.
Rebekah and Dennis Milstead, Maurica Jo and Roger Ingles, and Teresa Combs hosted the party. Grandson Wesley Milstead was the decoy to get June to the party. Grandson Brad Ingles served as the emcee for the event. Grandchildren Charley and Sarah Ingles helped with decorations and served as ushers. Kitchen helpers included Beth, Mary and Grace Gerber, Robin and Keith Hart, Kathy Ginn and Heidi Phipps.
The guests enjoyed the event and June was thankful to everyone who attended.
