This is What 100 Looks Like

I went to the 100th birthday of a friend, Edna Zelan.  I was a delight to see such an alert, erect, ambulatory and with it woman of such an advanced age.  The party was attended by about 100 people from all the areas she touched in her long life. There were local politicians, a school board member, community members and friends and family. She was an active member of CLASP, a day care facility where she not only sat on the board but also volunteered in the classroom helping with the children. She was also an active volunteer in North Shore Hospital providing comfort to patients. 
Edna received commendations from state and local officials including Governor Spitzer,  Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer. 
I look forward to her next birthday, 101.
