It was Sr. Joan’s 80th birthday March 5 and around 80 of her friends and well-wishers hid in Jameson’s Irish Pub to surprise her.  Chief organizer Mary Pierce had arranged for a massive cake with 80 candles – true – I counted them!

Sr. Joan, who is best known for her tireless work for underprivileged children in the Fountain of Life was very proud of the fact that the first one of her previously needy charges had just graduated from university and another 11 were current undergraduates.

The Pattaya Mail joined with everyone there to wish her all the best and we are all looking forward to her 90th!
