Shhhh.....It's a Surprise!!
A Drive By Birthday Party for
Mary Alice Nesbitt

Mary Alice Nesbitt will turn 90 years old on July 23 . Her daughter, Jaye White, is planning a drive by birthday party! She doesn't know about the plan, so please don't mention it to her! Jaye will arrange to have her seated outside the house, under a Duke blue canopy between 11:30 - 1 pm. Sadly, she's in the high risk category so there won't be any close contact, but she will love seeing you! Tell your friends! Click the link for a map! 3305 Gloucester Rd.
