Viola Smith Celebrates Her 102nd Birthday

Marie's cousin, drummer Viola Smith, who is a very dear part of Piecemakers' family, celebrated her 102nd birthday November 29, 2014. She is vibrant and active - in fact, we have a hard time keeping up with her! She teaches drumming to the drummer for Piecemakers Band and is at the store three days a week working and visiting with customers.

Below are photos from her birthday gathering with family and friends.
