There was a big birthday party for a house – yes, a house! The Willms ranch home is 160 years old so a party was held on the grounds. Lloyd Stueve had his Percheron horses pulling a wagon to take people on rides and David Clark had his tractor and wagon for hay rides. There was a band playing country music, lots of good food and a pictorial display of the Willms family. Joe from the construction company putting in the 4th water tube in the Hetch Hetchy pipeline to San Francisco told of the construction going through the Willms property. The wagon rides took folks to the site to see what was happening. It was a very fun event put on by Shirley Willms McPhee, Barbara Willms Barbagelata and John Barbagelata and Carolyn Willms Lopez and Fred Lopez and other family members.
