A Newmachar woman celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday, July 10.

The Thursday Club held a party for her on Thursday, July 14 to mark the very special occasion with cards, presents, cake and music from Raymond Mac.

Edith started as a helper for the club in 1995 and has been a member there since 2003.

She has lived in Newmachar for 35 years and previously lived in Hill of Minnes.

Edith says that attending the weekly Thursday Club has kept her alive.
