A couple of schooners with friends and a card from the Queen was the best 100th birthday gift for Eileen Penman.
The Hanging Rock resident is known to always look on the bright side of life. Ms Penman's son, Phillip, said tenacity and strong genes had blessed her with good health.
An early birthday celebration took place at the weekend where Ms Penman was showered in gifts and special letters. Ms Penman was most pleased with her birthday wishes from the Queen.
"After contacting our local member's office she also received letters from the Governor-General, Governor of NSW, the Speaker, Andrew Constance, Gladys Berejiklian, Scott Morrison and Fiona Phillips," Mr Penman said.
Fellow bowlers of the Malua Bay Bowling Club also popped in to wish Ms Penman a happy birthday.
