Two at Emmanuel celebrate 100th birthday -- Third woman must wait 'til Oct. 10
It's not too often that a person lives long enough to reach their 100th birthday.
So it was a rare occasion when two women at Emmanuel Community in Detroit Lakes reached the century mark on the same day.
Mabel Walters and Genevieve Bannister both celebrated their 100th birthday on Thursday, Aug. 19 -- and fellow Emmanuel resident Elsie Nelson will join them in the centenarian club on Oct. 10, 2010.
"I'll be 100 on 'ten-ten-ten'," as Elsie puts it.
