Arnoldsburg resident Hazel Ruth Wallbrown Brannon will sliding by 100 years next weekend, with a celebration at the home of her daughter Myrtle Carpenter.

Family and friends are invited to attend the open house between 1-5 p.m. Sunday, December 12. No gifts.

"I've seen a lot," Brannon says, since being born on Beech in 1910.

"I don't think about getting old, but my body tells me different."

Spirited and lively with her short and long-term memory still intact, she revels on her family history, particularly the Wallbrowns, German immigrants who came to Calhoun in 1877 and purchased 300 acres on Beech.

When asked about living to be this old, Hazel said, "God has a reason, maybe more time to get better."
