To the Editor: Here’s to Margaret 

To the Editor: 

I have been going to the YMCA in Bar Harbor for decades, and for the past few years I have had the pleasure of the company of an elderly lady, who, like me, liked to walk on the track around the basketball courts.  

We always said hello, but the other day, for the first time, we got into a conversation. I told her how much I admired her tenacity and joie de vivre, she thanked me, then told me she was…101 years old! Can you imagine? Still going to the gym a few times a week at 101. I found out at the front desk that her name was Margaret.  

Here’s to you, Margaret, and many, many more trips around the track.
