Chamber of Commerce Bi-Monthly Luncheon Series to present ‘A Slow Come Back is Better Than Nothing’

by CLIFF AND NANCY HILL

Mary Carpenter received so many cards in celebration of her 106th birthday, she has yet to find the time to open and read them all. The cards were an outpouring of love and best wishes from the Rockford community and her Rockford United Methodist Church family.

Mary Carpenter receives hundreds of birthday cards in celebration of her 106th birthday on March 25.

Best of all, an anonymous good Samaritan dropped off an autographed Tiger baseball to the Bishop Hills Elder Care Community office, where Mary resides. Mary, the oldest-known living Tiger fan, couldn’t have been happier.

Mary asked us to thank all of the many well-wishers who sent cards and flowers. Squire readers are the best!
