Life-long Alhambra resident Mildred Stratton celebrated her 102nd birthday, quarantine style, with a parade May 20. The Alhambra Police and Fire departments, Mayor Ross Maza, to the right of Ms. Stratton, and former Mayor/Councilmember Barbara Messina, on right, presented her with a commendation and bouquets of flowers. Alhambra Police Chief Timothy Vu wished her well. A line of more than 30 cars filled with well-wishers were cheered on by the well-wishers lining the sidewalk, while standing on chalked X’s spaced 6 feet apart on the walkway in front of her home. Ramona Convent Secondary School joined in the parade with the school van decorated just for the special birthday parade. The event was covered by Channel 2 and Channel 9 news, the LA Times, and KPPC News.
