Celebrating 90

15 October 2016

1926 was a very special year. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was born, as was my late grandfather and 101 of the people who I represent.

1926 was a very special year. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was born, as was my late grandfather and 101 of the people who I represent.

If my grandfather had been with us, we would have celebrated his 90th birthday on 26th March; however, as I am unable to do this, I decided to honour him by hosting a high tea celebration for all the people in my electorate who are turning 90 in 2016.

It was a wonderful afternoon with 47 of the 90-year-olds attending and almost 90 people attending overall.  

Special thanks to State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall for joining us, local business Patritti Wines (who also turned 90 this year!) for providing beverages, Brighton Secondary School String Quartet for the beautiful background music and the City of Holdfast Bay History Centre and the City of Marion Heritage Research Centre for bringing artifacts, photographs and information from 1926!
