Quiet celebration for 100th birthday

Posted: 6am 17 Jan 2022

Meg White, who has lived in Redcliffe for more than 50 years, has turned 100 today.

However, there are no big party plans at the Azure Blue retirement home where she lives.

Mrs White will, instead, celebrate quietly with a birthday cake at the home on Anzac Ave.
