About 150 relatives and friends celebrated this past Saturday the 100th Birthday of Ida Azzolino.
A huge crowd crunched into the Masonic Hall on Highland Avenue to have lunch and celebrate with Ida.
A beautiful buffet luncheon was prepared by her son-in-law Ross, along with her daughter Diane, and many others in the family.
Ida was very pleased to see and talk to many whom she hasn’t seen in a long time. Relatives from all over came into Somerville to enjoy the afternoon with her.
Also on hand was Alderman-at-Large Jack Connolly, who presented Ida with a citation from the Board of Alderman and the Mayor’s office. She was very pleased.
