Howard Lake woman celebrates 100th birthday
HOWARD LAKE, MN – Alice Wolfstellar told family members she “didn’t want a big fuss” to celebrate her birthday – certainly nothing like the last big birthday party. That party celebrated her 90th birthday, and included her first-ever motorcycle ride. But, that was not to be, as more than 200 family members and friends joined her Oct. 28, in the gym/fellowship hall at St. James Lutheran School in Howard Lake, to help her mark this milestone. The party was planned and organized by her nieces and nephew.
