Lonnie Holmes celebrated her 100th birthday in her apartment at Trinity Oaks with a visit from family and friends. One of Lonnie's favorite dolls is her Cabbage Patch doll. She was formerly a school teacher in Linwood. photo by Wayne Hinshaw, for the Salisbury Post
These rag dolls are part of the collection Lonnie Holmes began in 1965. She also loves music and began playing the piano in church when she was just 11 years old.
A 100th birthday deserves a big cake.
