Mayor's visit makes Beryl's day

BERYL Kitzelmann was born and raised in Ipswich, so it was a pleasant surprise when she had a special birthday visitor.

Mrs Kitzelmann is a fan of the Mayor of Ipswich, Paul Pisasale, and was delighted when his office arranged for a picture to be taken and for him to wish her a happy 90th birthday.

She also has been lifelong reader of The Queensland Times.

Mrs Kitzelmann's friend Cherene Byron said it would be a great thrill for her to bring her two great loves together for the special day.

"This would mean a great deal to my friend in the picture, who has been reading your paper most of her life that it has been in production," Ms Byron said.

"She was born and has lived in Ipswich all her life.

"Her 90th birthday was on June 2 and she enjoyed a celebration afternoon tea on Sunday, June 3, organised by her two sons with all her family and friends.

The Mayor further delighted Mrs Kitzelmann by wearing his ceremonial chains of office.

He also presented her with a Mayor Paul Pisasale cap, which she wore proudly.
