Thea Soland, longtime resident of Leisure World, had commented to her friends that over the years she had never had a birthday party...her birthday on December 28 was just too close to other celebrations and parties. Well, several of her friends got together and planned a surprise party for her 85th birthday!Thea usually knows everything that is going on around the park, so how they kept this party secret and a surprise is sort of miraculous...but surprised she was!
Rene and Joey Woods, new residents in Leisure World, have been helping Thea lately, and they were a big part of the party planning crew. (These photos are all courtesy of Joey!)
Pat LaFoe was right in the middle of things as well.
And Debbie Collins is always whispering secrets to the other park residents.
Loads of cards and a few special gifts will help Thea remember her 85th birthday PARTY!
When just a few of her Leisure World friends turned out to help her celebrate.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, THEA, from everyone in the Leisure World family.
