The historic Monte D’Oro neighborhood held a 50th anniversary celebration at Aldridge Gardens on July 27.
Councilman Gene Smith and Jabo Waggoner were guests along with new and old residents. Smith presented a declaration from Mayor Gary Ivey to the neighborhood. Cake & ice cream were served and the Kool Kats played 50s and 60s music. There were several door prizes donated by local businesses and everyone had an enjoyable time.
