Kay Martin turns 102

Kay Martin celebrates turning 102 and Elsie Jamieson 99 at the Revelstoke Seniors Centre last week.

A special birthday was celebrated at the Revelstoke Senior Citizens’ Association June Birthday Party last week. Kay Martin enjoyed her 102nd birthday on June 20, 2014. Kay can be seen walking around town, doing her own shopping and going to bingo every Monday at the Seniors Centre. She is very lucky at the games and wins quite often. She still takes the occasional trip to a casino.

Kay was born in Revelstoke, has one daughter, two grandsons, three great grand daughters and one great grandson. She has been an active member of various organizations over the years.

Also celebrating was Elsie Jamieson, seen above with Kay, who is turning 99. Elsie and Kay are shown blowing out the candles on their cake, which was made by Lori Newfield.
