Rollarama founder celebrates 90th -- on wheels

Guests celebrate with Joy Newberry, marking her 90th birthday.

SCHENECTADY -- One of the people behind a piece of Capital Region history celebrated her 90th birthday Sunday.

Rollarama Roller Rink on Hamburg Street welcomed skaters and non-skaters alike to mark the birthday of Joy Newberry, the original owner along with her husband and another couple.

Skating was prominently featured at the party, and a group on skates steered Newberry -- sitting in a wheeled scooter -- out onto the floor for a spin.
