January was a special month for Arcare Point Lonsdale, with Edith Bowen joining the centenarians club. Edith celebrated with fellow residents over a morning tea, followed by a weekend family function at Suma Park.
There was plenty of excitement as Edith had her 15 minutes of fame, being interviewed on the radio for Bay FM.
Everyone was eager to know how Edith has maintained such good health. She puts it down to good genes and modern medicine.
Edith used to work as a nurse where she would do home visits on a bike. She said that she was very glad when cars became more readily available and joked that she has not been on a bike since.
