COMMUNITY stalwart Terry Bennett celebrated his 100th birthday on Valentine’s Day.
Surrounded by family and friends at Cabanda, where he now lives, the quietly spoken Terry enjoyed the attention showered upon him. He admits that he was looking forward to morning tea, a glass of cold milk and a piece of birthday cake, one of his favourite combinations. He was also proud of the formal congratulations he received from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Prime Minister and Governor General along with many other cards, messages and flowers to mark the day.
The formal celebration of the occasion where he will catch up with a large number of family and friends, will be held next weekend. We joined Terry’s well wishes in congratulating him on his milestone celebration.
