Martha Ann turns 106

Thanks to branch member, Karen Darner for sending this picture and reporting that their church, Clarendon UMC, honored Martha Ann Miller on August 6 on her 106th birthday by bringing 106+ boxes of cereal to church to donate to Arlington Food Assistance Center in her honor. “Pretty cool”, as Karen said.

Martha Ann is like the Energizer Bunny!
