Living to see 100 years old is not something very many persons get to experience.
Virgin Gorda resident Eda Flax Varlack is one of the few local who reached that milestone and was gifted with $5,000 grant as a result.
Cabinet approved for the centenarian to receive the grant during a previous meeting this month.
Mrs Flax Varlack turned 100 on November 29.
Her birthday was also marked with a special church ceremony in the Valley, Virgin Gorda and with visits from officials such as Deputy Governor David Archer, Jr. The centenarian also received a personal message from Her Majesty the Queen.
