Special cake for special lady on Saturday

Florence Rhodes Lawrence
Florence Rhodes Lawrence has been baking cakes for fellow worshippers at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church for as long as the congregation can remember.
Which is longer than most of us have been alive.
Come Saturday, it will be the church’s turn to bring the beloved deaconess and former church Mother of the Year a cake.
It’s Florence’s 100th birthday.
The fun starts at 5:30 p.m. and niece Susan Stubbs said more than 200 family members and friends are expected from as far as New York, the Carolinas, Georgia and Miami for the celebration.
Born in Madison, Fl., Florence came to Bradenton at 6.
“Auntie thinks she’s baking a cake for Saturday, but she’s going to get one instead,” her niece said.

Southeast High hosts Manatee 6 p.m. Tuesday in their annual Volley for the Cure volleyball fundraiser for the Susan B. Komen Foundation.
Pink will be the color du jour for the teams, referees and the volleyball.
Call Jan Drummey at 792-7398.

Norma Lloyd
Just a reminder there will be a Celebration of Life for Norma Lloyd, 2 p.m. Sunday at Norma Lloyd Park, 1024 24th St. E., Bradenton. The matriarch of Little League baseball in Bradenton passed away Sept. 18 at the age of 79.

Big ups to niece Lauren Pierce, who just made co-captain of the Manatee School for the Arts’ dynamic Heat dance team.
