Dodds Celebrates 100th Birthday

A resident at Aldersgate in Meridian, Frances Dodds, celebrated her 100th birthday Tuesday.

Mrs. Dodds' family and friends joined her to mark this amazing milestone.

Along with having cake and ice cream, a band also played old-time country music as part of the celebration.

Mrs. Dodds said it was wonderful to see all her relatives and friends at her party.

"I'm just glad you're all here. It's wonderful to see everybody," said Dodds. "I was so surprised when I saw my ones from Texas because I hadn't even thought that they might get here. But I'm certainly glad they did!"

Frances also wanted to say hello to all of her friends in her hometown of New Albany, Miss.
