A big happy birthday to Harry Dickson of Aveo Edrington Park who has just celebrated his 100th birthday in a very special way.
A proud member and supporter of Richmond Football Club since 1925, Harry was honoured to have Ex-Richmond player, Cr Geoff Ablett, present a speech at his birthday celebrations.
Jason Wood MP, Brad Battin MP and Casey Mayor Amanda Stapledon were also in attendance to celebrate Harry’s birthday and wish him well.
Having lived in Melbourne his whole life, Harry is well known within the community for being very active and involved.
Harry has also celebrated his 100th birthday with his family and the Freemasons, where he has been a member for over 75 years.
When asked what advice Harry has for living a long, healthy life, he said;
“Most importantly, enjoy life! Life passes quickly, I can’t believe I’m 100. You will always have good days and bad days, but the good ones outweigh the bad ones. Remember that life is what you make of it.”
