Dona Lida celebrates birthday

Dona Lida (12)During the resort’s 50th anniversary celebration Dona Lida was the first one on the dance floor and the last one to leave the room at the conclusion of the gala event. Thus it came as no surprise that in honor of her 80th birthday, the feisty octogenarian wished for a ballroom party at the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa.

Granddaughter Erna, her husband Henri Barrau, the resort’s Chief of security, great-grandchildren Anneka, Sebastian & Nathalie, joined the extended family members and friends, under the musical direction of DJ Paco, for a fantastic part in the Grand Caribbean Ballroom. Chef Martin Smeets planned a delicious dinner buffet followed by a great array of home made cakes.
