Ms. Arrelia High Turns 111
 
Ms. Arrelia High had a great big 111th birthday celebration yesterday, July 2nd, at Elizabethtown Nursing Center with her friends and family.  High's family presented the birthday lady with the Bladen County Proclamation from the County Commissioners in honor of her 111th birthday. 
 
The Proclamation recognizes the role model Ms. High is for the citizens on Bladen County and gives special recognition and appreciation to Ms. High for all her many years of work for the betterment of her community.  
 
Ms. High was born on July 2nd, 1903 in Bladen County to Jasper S. McMillian and Polly McDowell.  She was raised with several siblings on a family farm on Mercer Mill-Brown Marsh Road.  She worked on the family farm in Bladen County until she married, Billy High, from New York/New Jersey, after her father and mother passed way.
 
Ms. High was a devoted homemaker who lived in New York/New Jersey until her husband, Mr. High, passed away in 1965.  Ms. High then returned to Bladen County. 
 
Ms. High has been very active and a diligent worker to the Lula's Temple.  She is a great inspiration for many.  What a great day it is when you can celebrate a wonderful lady that has now turned 111 years old.
