Newport woman celebrates 100th birthday
Helen Petrowske stopped driving just last year, but shows few signs of slowing down.
With help from family and friends at Red Rock Manor in Newport, Petrowske celebrated her 100th birthday last Tuesday.
"I think it's great," Petrowske said of the Nov. 22 luncheon in her honor, adding that she did not expect such commotion.
Petrowske has lived at Red Rock Manor for about six years. She plays bingo on Wednesdays and finds other ways to stay active.
