Sentimental Sunday – Baby Shower for Me!

Newspaper article from the Humboldt Standard, Friday, July 10, 1959, Page 11

I love small town newspapers from days gone by. The fact that they reported on the really important news of the day, like who was going on vacation, who is back in town, and who attended a baby shower.

My Great Aunt Georgia and my Grandmother Beatrice were the hostesses for a baby shower that was held for my mother (and ME!) 3 months before my birth. My elder sister, Jane, assisted with the decorations and refreshments.

Most of the attendees are relatives and people that that I have heard stories about my whole life.
