And we want to wish a very Happy 100th birthday to  Alberta Danks. Birthdays look a little different during the pandemic, so we wanted to make sure Alberta gets lots and lots of well wished for her special day. And she is giving us all a great gift, some words of wisdom. Her advice to younger generations: enjoy life. Thank you for that reminder Alberta. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and you have many more Happy Moments.
