99 and counting

Margaret McFarlane, a former longtime resident of Gloversville, celebrated her 99th birthday at The Buttery in Lewes, Del.

McFarlane moved to Gloversville in 1934 from Westfield, Mass., and worked at the Eccentric Club for many years until her retirement at age 83. She relocated to Milton, Del., in 2007.

Her son Bruce McFarlane says she celebrated her 95th, 96th, 97th, and 98th birthdays at the same restaurant and is looking

forward to her 100th.
