Betty Melendez 88th Birthday posted by on May 29, 2017

We were invited to a birthday party given by Barry Ivan White at his home for his friend and fellow entertainer Betty Melendez last week. It was Betty’s 88th birthday. She is a Mexican movie star and long time songstress that still entertains both in Cancun and Las Vegas. She spends about 6 months in each of these cities. The following is a film clip from a movie she starred in 1962 at age 33.

The following are some of the pictures from the party.

Betty entertained us with humorous stories of her life, and of course several  songs.

This special day was filled with a dish to pass from each of the guests, cake, ice cream, singing by Barry, Betty, Cynthia Morningstar Davis, and others. Guests present were from 6 different countries. The conversation was vigorous and the commaradere wonderful. The guest of honor enjoyed her special day immensely. Cancun is a very special place where this kind of gathering is common among friends that live here. Come and enjoy the fun.
