A grand 100th birth­day

Betty’s favourite rolls and sausage were on the menu at sur­prise party . . .

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The con­gre­ga­tion of a Ruther­glen church gave a birth­day sur­prise to one of their old­est mem­bers.

Betty Skin­ner was born right in the mid­dle of World War One, on Au­gust 14, 1916.

And to mark her land­mark birth­day, mem­bers of Rut h e rglen West and Ward­lawhill Church de­cided to throw a shindig.

Betty still at­tends the church ev­ery week as well as a va­ri­ety of so­cial and fundrais­ing events.

Her favourite church event is when Robert cooks his fa­mous “rolls and sausage.”

So it was not al­to­gether a sur­prise when the main course at her 100th party was rolls and sausage.

And the touch added greatly to her big day.

Af­ter en­joy­ing her birth­day meal and cake, she was pre­sented with a large bou­quet of flow­ers from the young mem­bers of the Sun­day Groups as well as many birth­day cards - of course, one from Her Majesty The Queen.
