Rose Vignal celebrates 100 years
September 4, 2013
Rose Vignal celebrated her 100th birthday on August 28 in her Grass Valley home with three generations of her family present. Her long-time friend, Andrea was also there to celebrate.
Mayor Dan Miller presented Vignal with a proclamation of her 100th year, reading aloud the highlights of her very full life. Though quite hard-of-hearing, Vignal listened attentively to the Mayor's words nodding and smiling at memories he revived.
Representing Gold Country Community Services' board of directors, treasurer Tom Brown congratulated Vignal on "achieving such a rich life." She received a hand-made card signed by all the drivers who deliver Rose's Meals-on-Wheels lunches.
