"When you're with Miss will begin"

Ginny (Swenson) O'Brien celebrated her 80th birthday last night at the East Side Business Men's Association -- and Doug Moe was there taking notes. Moe's column in today's edition of The Capital Times lists some of the guests; reports that O'Brien, who sings Dixieland jazz with the Avenue Sizzlers every Monday at the Avenue Bar, shows no signs of slowing down; and doesn't forget to mention that the birthday girl graduated from Madison Central High School in 1944. Moe has certainly surpassed the one "Central connection" column a year I complained about in a post in January. Let's hope he keeps up the good work.

Note: The photo accompanying this post is from the 1944 issue of The Mirror Magazine (the name of the Madison Central High School yearbook during World War II).
