Birthday celebration

The Princeton United Pentecostal Church celebrates the 99th birthday of the oldest member, Bob Bird Sr., by releasing 99 balloons after the Sunday morning service on June 29. Since Bird now lives at Liberty Village, the church came to him. Pastor Ron Townsley praises Bob Bird for his many years of service, as his wife, Aggie Bird, stands nearby.
