The Tuesday Club in Cordes Lakes honored longtime resident Betty Digges with a potluck and her own bench at the community center during her 91st birthday celebration.

When Betty turned 90, she donated all of her birthday money to purchase a sound system for the community center.

There was money left over, and when the Tuesday Club met, suggestions ranged from a rock with Betty's name, to a plaque on the fence, and finally members agreed that a bench with a sign stating "Donated by Betty Digges" would be perfect just outside the door of the community center.

Look for Betty on Channel 8's cooking show on March 8 featuring her delectable double crust lemon pie.
