On August 25, Marie Beecroft, a resident of Aveo The Domain Country Club on the Gold Coast, celebrated her 100th birthday in style! With her friends, family, fellow residents and village staff all in attendance, the party kicked off at the village community area. As champagne bottles popped in unison, government officials, including a representative from Minister Steven Ciobo’s office and Councillor Dawn Crichlow, joined guests to celebrate prior to a delicious two course luncheon. Marie reflected on her colourful life as she cut the enormous 100th birthday cake, thanking everyone for their part in her life story. After some kind words from Aveo representatives, and the presentation of multiple bouquets of flowers, Marie was especially delighted to receive a personal letter of congratulations from Mayor Tom Tate. The champagne flowed, and celebrations continued into the afternoon and everyone enjoyed a very fitting celebration to a wonderful 100 years of life and friendship.
