Last weekend Division Street neighbors and residents came together in a socially distant manner to wish two longtime Maldonians a very happy 100th birthday! Marge Crocker and Neska Berthel were both born in the year 1920 – the dawn of the “Roaring Twenties” and the year that women gained the right to vote.
Organized by longtime Havelock Street residents Warren and Mary Ciampoli, the neighborhood came alive with a drive-by car parade displaying posters, cards, and balloons to celebrate Marge and Neska’s milestone birthdays. A tuba player along with local guitarists played while everyone sang Happy Birthday. Councillor Barbara Murphy delivered citations from Mayor Gary Christenson and the City Council commemorating their milestone birthdays and wished them all the best from the City.
