Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, had the pleasure of celebrating the 100th birthday of Kemps Creek resident, Ethel Smith. Tanya celebrated the special occasion with Ethel, her family and friends, where she was presented with a congratulatory message from the Speaker of the NSW Legislative Assembly, Shelley Hancock MP.
Ethel likes to stay active by participating in various activities at the Emmaus Retirement Village. Her friends say that they reluctantly get involved in in-house competitions and games because Ethel wins almost every competition. Ethel is also kept very busy enjoying quality time with her 5 children, 22 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and 3.5 great great grandchildren.
When asked what her secret was to a long life, she modestly replied, "I don't know how I got to this age but I have enjoyed life and have gotten involved in many things along the way."
“I would like to wish Ethel a very happy birthday and congratulate her on reaching such an incredible milestone,” Tanya Davies said.
