Another active member of the The Warwick Valley Seniors Club just joined a rapidly growing exclusive group of people in that organization.
On Wednesday, Sept. 11, the Club members held a 90th birthday celebration for Louise Daubert, the daughter of Peter and Catherine Wilhelm, who was born Sept. 9, 1929.
Daubert was raised on the family farm in New Milford.
She met her late husband Herb, a construction worker, at a wedding in the late 1940s and they remained lifelong residents of Warwick.
She and her husband raised three children and today Daubert can boast of her six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
As to her longevity, she was never a smoker but did enjoy an occasional glass of wine.
Daubert retired as a teacher's aide at BOCES and today she keeps active as a member of the Senior Club. The celebration, serving cakes and refreshments and everyone singing, "Happy Birthday," took place at the spacious and modern facility that is the Warwick Senior Center, adjacent to the Town Hall on Kings Highway, which first opened in June 2005.
The only requirement for membership in The Warwick Valley Seniors Club is that you must be age 60 or over. The advantage of membership includes taking trips together and enjoying entertainment and informative guest speakers.
Anyone interested in joining or wanting additional information should call Marie Sisti at 988-0793.
