1963 Catherine's Half Birthday - July 29

Of all the days
May Your [½] Birthday be
The happiest day of all,
And may the year that follows
Be happiest to recall!

Love and XXXXX  Mother and Daddy, Roberta, Serena and John

Summer of 1963, following the New England trip, Catherine attended [pre] 9th Grade Camp at the Methodist Camp Ground in Sabina.  This former camp ground, is now a housing development, and as I recall hearing had previously been a race track.  [I'm still trying to find out where the race track was in New Vienna as there are references to such a place.]  Transcription follows.
