This past Monday, Lamplighter Manor in Detroit Lakes had not just one, but two birthday girls among its residents.

Oma Grove, 98, and Ruth Knapp, 97, were born one year apart, but on the same day -- March 29.


Oma is a relatively new resident at Lamplighter, having moved there from her longtime home in Adrian, Minn., about a year and a half ago.
