Miss Maud Blackburn Celebrates BirthdayMiss Maud Blackburn, resident of the county home for a number of years, celebrated her 67th birthday anniversary Saturday by entertaining friends who called and brought gifts. Among them were Rev. and Mrs. Roy Shade, who gave her a quilt; Mrs. C. F. Hixson, who presented her with a luncheon cloth and napkins to use on the little table in her room when she eats, and Mrs. Ralph Montgomery, who brought her a birthday cake.
She received other gifts and many cards. Miss Blackburn has been a member of the Free Methodist church, of which Rev. Shade is pastor, for over a year.
These appear on a scrapbook page where the only dates noted are 11/5/1940 and 12/3/1940. They appear to be from a single column of the Boulder Camera. All are from E. C. Swallow's scrapbooks; contact me for scan. Caps are mine, not the paper’s. -- Leah McKin, LMckin7884@aol.com
