Mayor David Jones joined residents and staff at Islands Convalescent Center Feb. 6 to celebrate the Town of Friday Harbor's 100th Birthday by cutting the town's first birthday cake and reading the Town of Friday Harbor's Proclamation.

Two of the eldest residents at ICC, sisters Mickey Cahail, 99, and May Boyce, 102, were visited by Jones in their room which they share, and received cake, ice cream and a greeting. These women have lived in Friday Harbor their whole lives.

"Watching the residents' shining faces as they gathered together to celebrate this special occasion was so special to see," said Betsy Anderson, ICC activities director.

"Residents, staff members and I appreciated Mayor David Jones' company and that he took the time to honor the Town of Friday Harbor with people who have lived here for so long. It was an honor to help facilitate that."
