Ms. Marcia King celebrated her 70th birthday last October in Ottawa with a preexisting condition.  Marcia was quite Pretty, Polite and Plural (PPP); as 100 of her dearest friends reassembled in a group collective to wine and dine with her on this auspicious occasion.

Marcia is a breast cancer survivor and the evenings function was punctuated with hymns, prayers and readings from her home church JULIANNE OF NORWICH….an Anglican outreach diocese on Rossland Road in Ottawa.

Immediately following the church service, the tidy group repaired to a social ballroom where DJ Terry Cheong (DJ T.C) played music reminiscent of an era and period long past..            

Marcia stuck the traditional birthday cake with one of her several godchildren amidst much laughter, cheers and compliments.  There were nine tables assigned for the social event and each table had a symbolic name of the places she lived in Guyana like Poudroyene, Camp Street, Norton Street and Albert Street.

Marcia, over the last 25 years, has been co-hosting the annual oldies dance in June and more recently has been organizing cruises for her cohort groups and other Caribbean nationals.

All in all Marcia has been quite pleasant, productive and prolific (PPP) as a social activist in the Ottawa community and they all wish her long life and continuous enhanced quality of life.
