  Cindy Rice was honored at a birthday party in the home of Judy Love. Hostesses were Love, Barbara Brou, Terry Bradley, Mary Lou Ille, Gayle Semtner and Sylvia Slater. On the invitation was a picture of Cindy wearing pink and standing in front of her new pink Cadillac.


Guests were asked to wear pink. And they did.  They wore pink jewelry, pink scarves, pink dresses, pink shoes and they carried pink purses. The honoree had on pink satin slacks and pink shoes, along with a white top. Love wore a hot pink dress; Brou had on a pale pink and slacks and blouse; Bradley had on a white dress with pink flowers and Semtner wore a pink and black polka dot shirt with black slacks. Ille wore a pink sweater and Slater wore a pink blouse and pink jewelry. Judy McDowell and Ginny Foster wore pink feather boas and brought Rice a pink license plate for her car. The hostesses’ gift to Rice was a Judith Ripka cross with a pink stone in the center.

A pink-colored chicken casserole was served.

Four bundt cakes with pink roses and pink Gerber daisies in the center served as the centerpiece.

Among the guests were Valerie Oakley, Linda Bradley, Susan Johnston, Sandy Shapard, Sue Nix, Judy McGrath, Joanne Hoch and Eileen Williams.
