Posters, banners, cake, singing and many of her family were there to great her and wish her a happy birthday. Though her actual birthday isn’t until the 25th, it’s never too early to start the celebrating. It was her niece in Portland, Oregon whose idea was to have a surprise party. So she organized the family and ordered the cake. The children played music and sang songs that Janet tirelessly worked with them on in music class. They also sang a special Mrs. Wilson’s 80th Birthday Song to the tune of Jingle Bells. Volunteers make a big difference in a school and home setting such as Kurn Hattin’s. Janet has made a big impact in both the quality of the music program and the children’s love and success in music. We love you Janet Wilson. Happy Birthday!
