Join Mary Helen Cole and her family from 2-4 p.m. on Aug. 10 to celebrate her 100th birthday at Greenway Baptist Church in Boone. Mary, born in Caldwell County on Aug. 20, 1919, attended Appalachian State Teacher’s College after moving to Boone with her family during the Great Depression. When she retired, Mary had 30 years of experience in education. She now lives in Boone with her five children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren close by.

Mary and her family would like to invite the community to drop by on Aug. 10 to help celebrate this special occasion.
