Rose Kelly of Cobble Hill Apartments celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by family and friends at the Somerville City Club. Her family flew in from all across the country, including California, to join her in reaching this amazing milestone.
Her friends and neighbors from Cobble Hill shared in the festivities and we all enjoyed a meal with music and good conversation. I had a chance to chat with my friend Bill Roche, Alderman for Ward 1 in Somerville, along with many of Rose’s friends and familiar faces. With so many friendly people around, I can see what makes Cobble Hill such a lively community and a great place to live.
It was my pleasure to meet Rose and her wonderful family. Rose looks amazing for her age–I could hardly believe she was turning 100! In honor of her momentous day, I presented Rose with a citation from the Massachusetts State Legislature congratulating her and wishing her many more birthdays to come.
Happy Birthday Rose!
