On Friday 10 March Twilight Aged Care resident of 10 years, Joan McKimm celebrated her 100th birthday at her Hunters Hill Village home surrounded by family, staff and fellow residents. The Hunters Hill Mayor, Richard Quinn and the Honourable Trent Zimmerman, Member for North Sydney also dropped by to help celebrate this auspicious occasion.
A real highlight of the morning was when Joan received her official Centenarian’s letter of congratulation from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and from the Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull. The milestone event also attracted wide media attention with Joan featured in local papers and she even made the Channel 7 evening news bulletin!
When asked, the former champion golfer and lawn bowls lover said the secret to her longevity was eating an orange a day and keeping her mind active. Once again Hunters Hill Village staff pulled out all stops to make it a very special occasion. Joan was an original Horton House, Gordon resident who recently made the move to Hunters Hill.
