CLIO — Birthday celebrations have been hard to do during the pandemic.
But Lula Mae Billings Woods didn’t have to worry about her 104th birthday because all she had to do was sit in her doorway to get some love.
Her family, friends, and community members participated in a drive-by birthday celebration for Woods on Saturday, Aug. 15. Woods turned 104 on Aug. 14.
People lined up in their vehicles at old School of Discovery, then drove past her home honking their horns, and yelling well wishes to her. It was led by the Clio Police.
Dennis Hardison of A New Creation played jazz music. Hardison has played every year since her 90th birthday.
Woods said she felt good about turning 104.
She attributed her longevity to God and asking him to keep going as long as he sees fit.
