The Woodland Community Center in Woodland, Wash., was filled with celebration as birthdays totaling 289 years came together.

Lavina Bliss (left) is 99. Marian Crozier, a Woodland Church member, is 101. Martha Ferguson, Lavina’s sister, is the youngest of the group at age 90. And Charles Ferguson, brother-in-law to Martha, will be 99 soon.

Martha’s children — Arlene Wing, Flora Campbell, Marilyn Sutton, Carolyn Piekarek and Lyle Ferguson — were all on hand to help celebrate their mother’s 90th birthday.
