Birthday wishes to:  Leonard Shoffner on Jan. 20; Sadie Helton on Jan. 24 and J.T. Smith Jr. on Jan. 25.  If you would like a birthday or anniversary listed in this column, please let me know.

A birthday party was held at the Farmington Community Center Jam on Thursday to celebrate the birthdays of Tom Cornatzer and Violet Coursey.  Everyone enjoyed some great music and food, including birthday cake. Tom celebrated his 91st birthday on Jan. 11 and Violet celebrated her 93rd on Jan. 13.  They act younger than I do, and can definitely out dance me. We all wish Tom and Violet a Happy Birthday and many more. Thanks to Julia Pilcher for sharing some photos.
