Prissie Harrison Celebrates Birthday Little Miss Prissie Harri- son, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Harrison, was honored on her fifth birthday with a party for her and her kindergarten classmates on Monday, Oc- tober 18, at Paxton High School. Prissie and her classmates enjoyed birthday cupcakes de- corated for Halloween in orange and black with little witches, ghosts and other spooks. The room was de- corated in the traditional Hal- loween style and the little guests were served orange punch from Halloween cups and given candy and other treats on Halloween napkins. The birthday girl was dres- sed for the occasion in a black pantsuit featuring an orange jack-o-lantern and she had her long blonde hair tied up in a ponytail with orange and black ribbons. The cake was indeed a treat since it looked enough like a pumpkin to be real. It was shaped like a pumpkin and co- vered with orange icing and gi- ven a black jack-o-lantern's face. On top, a witch was stirring:a pot of some kind of brew and five candles were featured for Prissie to blow out as her class sang "happy birthday". Special guests besides her classmates, were Mrs. Bar- bara Parker, Mrs. Mike Har- rison, her mother, Prissie's grandmother, Yvonne Harri- son, and her teachers, Mrs. Whittington, and Mrs. Lynn Lowery. Honoring Miss Prissie Harrison (center) on her birthday were (from left) Mrs. Whittington, teacher, Mrs. Mike Harri- son, mother; Mrs. Lynn Lowery, teacher; Mrs. Yvonne Harrl- son, grandmother; and Mrs. Barbara Parker, special guest.
