Great Gram Turns 100!
On August 8, Gram (Dad's mom) turned 100 years old! All the DeRonja kids and their kids went up to celebrate at a birthday party hosted by Uncle Pat. Our cousins and others from Pat's side of the family were there too. It was a gorgeous day and we had the most enornous picnic (in terms of food) you've ever seen! Gram's cake was beautiful. Cherie had gone to Kinko's to make the special table decorations in the background here...Gram's wedding picture, her birth certificate and entry papers from Ellis Island and a list of interesting facts about life in 1908. A loaf of bread was just five cents!
