Tina Wallace: A day to remember

I want to thank everyone who was involved in making Jean Cates’ 100th birthday wish come true. Thank you to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, the EMTs who donated their time, Cory at The Union newspaper, Deacon Ann at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, the Wildwood Quartet, all the locals who came out to wish her a happy birthday and anyone I may have missed.
