An 80th birthday party for June Cox was the big event on August 22 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cox.

Many people came dressed as Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tinman, The Cowardly Lion, witches, Munchkins, ballerinas, Lollypop Kids, and even Flying Monkeys. The Theme, of course, was "The Wizard of Oz." One of June's favorite movies.

A re-enactment of that movie was enjoyed by all.

Fifty-five members of the family attended and good food, fun and laughter was shared by all. Eighty colorful balloons were released and floated upwards along with good wishes.

Terry Schruckengost, June's daughter, planned the party with lots of help from other members of the family. A lot of work and planning was involved, which made the party a huge success. A party for June's 90th birthday is already being planned.
