Parade, cake for 90th birthday

Gerrie Picchietti celebrated her 90th birthday with a parade and neighborhood "party" in front of her home in Graue Mill. And while the wind prevented the lighting of the candles on her cake, it didn't stop the crowd from singing a rousing "Happy Birthday." Her niece, Karen Gron, with husband Henry and daughter Molly in the back seat, was part of the parade as was granddaughter Christine Picchietti. (Jim Slonoff photos)
