Ladies, time to be so thankful

THERE was a double reason for celebration at St Michael's Home for the Aged at Casino during Beef Week.

Residents Miriam 'Topsy' Stevens turned 104 and Ruby Morrow received an award for her community work.

Friends and family gathered for morning tea and entertainment to celebrate with the two ladies.

Ms Morrow's family travelled from as far away as Brisbane and Ms Stevens was delighted with the turnout.

"I couldn't be anything else but happy to have family and friends around," she said.
