Longtime Apalachicola resident Alice Jean Gibbs, artist and teacher, was thrown a 100th birthday party Saturday afternoon at the home of her daugher and son-in-law, Lynn and Bill Spohrer.

Guests gathered to toast the former Coca-Cola model and original Rockette. Gibbs' two daughters, Spohrer and Carol Harris, were there, along with their extended families to mark the milestone with delectables, wine, champagne and, of course, a birthday cake.
