100th Birthday


dsc_0307-1Cecelia Viola Smolton Connor celebrated her 100th birthday on September 18th, 2016.  Over 50 friends and family came to celebrate the joyous occasion at Olde Knox Commons in Huntersville, North Carolina.

Among the honorary guests was Mecklenburg County Commissioner Ella Scarborough.  Commissioner Scarborough is the chairwoman for the Economic Development Committee which encourages economic growth and prosperity for all people and businesses in Mecklenburg County.  She gave a compelling speech on the importance of this occasion and how great Cecelia was doing for 100 years of life.

On top of great food and great friends, the event was overwhelmed with beautiful music.  Gethsemane Choir and Community Choir both sang beautifully.  These performances were followed by a good friend of Cecelia and then Cecelia herself.  It was by far one of the most beautiful events in the form of love and family legacy that I’ve ever witnessed.

Family came near and far for this event.  Generations and generations shared a special moment in Huntersville at this 100th Birthday party and we are so thankful to have been apart of it.
