The staff of ILS wanted to give our supervisor Laura a special “60th” surprise birthday party at Palisades. We wanted Laura to know that we really do appreciate all she does for us and give her a very special birthday to remember. Jeannie and I had been talking, and since Laura has a “Goat collection” we decided we should come up with a live goat for her party. Since I have friends who own goats I thought I could get one for the party. We also thought it would be a great idea to invite Michael and Rachel, Laura’s children, to come to the party as a surprise. Rachel came and was presented to Laura along with the goat, Daisy. I think Laura was very surprised and very happy. She loved the goat, but I think Rachel was her favorite surprise! Jeannie also thought Laura should have a rocking chair and Joyce Hanna made her a beautiful quilt, which we all signed. Laura knew we were up to something but had no idea what we were really planning. I think this is a birthday she will long remember!
