Oak Hammock resident will join the centenarian club tomorrow

Categories: Media

Oak Hammock resident, Brenda Thomas, will be celebrating her 100th birthday tomorrow, June 30th.

Oak Hammock Communications Coordinator, Kathy Cafazzo, says Brenda can normally be found sewing and quilting several times a week and has continued to make quilts for her fellow residents.

Brenda has lived in Gainesville since 1946, Cafazzo says, and will be one of three residents in the centenarian group at the retirement community.

CBS4 News got to speak with Brenda, and she shared with us the secret to being able to live a long and happy life.

“You eat chocolate. You eat red wine. You eat scotch. You drink scotch. You drink white sine, sure,” Brenda said.

Happy 100th Birthday, Brenda, from all of us here at CBS4 News!
