Celebrating a lifetime of happiness

Time to strut: Kitty Appicello celebrated her 103rd birthday at her Erdrick Street home in grand Philly style on March 30 — with Mummers. Appicello dances to the Mummers’ sound as she was surrounded by friends and family, including her seventh great-great-grandchild. Appicello moved to the city from upstate Pennsylvania 95 years ago.
