Well-known centenarian Una Halliday celebrated her 102nd birthday at Imlay House on Saturday.
A very large cake was needed as Una received many guests from Sydney, Bombala and the local area.
As the Towamba School’s oldest past-student, Una was delighted to receive a very large card filled with personal messages from all the students.
She was also honoured with congratulatory messages from the Queen, Prime Minister Julia Gillard and other dignitaries from around Australia.
“Very excited they were about it,” she said of the visit from Towamba staff and students.
“You’d think I was Queen, I got some beautiful flowers and they’re still going strong.”
Una remains in good spirits and loves to chat with her many family and friends.
“The worst part about getting old is that my sight is going,” she said.
Una was born and raised in Towamba and lived in Sydney for many years, becoming one of the city’s first female taxi drivers, before retiring to Eden later in life.
