Reeves’ birthday party planned

Woolstock Community Hall will be the site of a birthday celebration on Sunday for a famous native son.

The actor also was featured in a number of motion picture roles, including “Gone with the Wind,” “From Here to Eternity” and “So Proudly We Hail.”

The party was originally scheduled for Jan. 5 but due to the extremely cold temperatures, organizers decided to postpone the event for a week.
