A retirement/birthday party is being held for LuLu (Loretta) Smith, who has worked at Jamaica Bay Inn for the last 40 years as a waitress and hostess.

The party will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 9th, at Casa Escobar, 14160 Palawan Way, Marina del Rey, (310) 822-2199.

Elaine Armstrong, a close friend of Smith’s and organizer of the party, said Smith will be celebrating her 70th birthday and she also just retired from Jamaica Bay Inn.

Armstrong said the party will be held at Casa Escobar because it was a favorite place for Smith to come and relax with friends, and she hopes that all of Smith’s friends and former customers will attend to help her celebrate this important milestone in her life.
