Celebrating a century
Gertrude Shultz is turning 100 on Saturday, and those who know her are invited to come give her a hug at a party from 1 to 4 p.m. at the McRae Park Shelter Building. Shultz was a foster grandma at Lincoln School for 23 years, and has lived on the north side of Alpena her whole life. She loves children, red poppies, gardening, sewing and fishing. She is in good health and lives at home by herself. She has six children, seven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.
