On Sept. 18, a surprise party was given to honor Doris Kelly on her 75th birthday. To celebrate her special day, Doris thought she was going out for a quiet lunch with her friend, Ethel Pherson, but instead she was surprised with a tea party organized by Suzan Cobb and Joy Pherson at Calvary Baptist Church.
Since Doris was born and raised in Ninilchik, Her knowledge is rich with local history and stories of days gone by.
At the tea, her friends enjoyed sharing stories of how Doris had enriched their lives. One friend said Doris is a remarkable seamstress and has made countless quilts for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and the children in her church.
Ladies who attended the celebration were Terral Anderson, Suzan Cobb, Harriet Covey, Cindy Crabb, Karen Grimes, Betsey Knox, Marian Hostetter, Marilyn Morris, Ethel Pherson, Joy Pherson, Lisa Westergaard and me.
