There were no helicopter rides, powered parachute trips, or even a visit to a local fishing hole for Floy Nelson this week.
Nevertheless, Floys 100th birthday was jam-packed with special moments with scores of family and other well-wishers helping her celebrate the day.
A birthday dinner Friday evening at the family farm drew 19 people. Another dinner at Iola Masonic Lodge drew a crowd of about 80 on Saturday. Then on Sunday the family took her out for lunch, where another dozen attended.
