This is a special "Thank You" to all who participated in the drive-by for Annabelle Coleman's 100th birthday celebration. It turned out to be a very eventful day as Annabelle was able to greet all from her sitting room window. She very much enjoyed it all, because she hadn't had any company to visit for the last 6 to 8 weeks as the COVID-19 virus upset our lives.
She likes to be entertained and depends on company for entertainment and so she was very well entertained on April 26 for her birthday as 106 cars drove by to say "Hello." It was also exciting to see the fire trucks drive down Coleman Road as Sudlersville, Millington and Crumpton came with their sirens sounding off and lights flashing. Sheriff (Gary) Hofmann was very accommodating sending Sgt. Davidson and another officer for traffic control.
Many thanks to Maryland Governor (Larry) Hogan and Comptroller (Peter) Franchot for taking time out of their busy schedules to send commendations recognizing her 100 years. She is very appreciative for all the cards, phone calls, gifts and much love from family support.
We are very grateful for the interest of Doug Bishop and the Queen Anne's Record Observer telling the story of a fun and eventful birthday.
