Centenarian Louise Franks Enjoys Bermuda Day

May 26, 2015

Proving that one is never too old to get out and have a good time, Louise Franks, who is more than 100-years-old, took to the streets yesterday [May 25] in order to take in the sights and sounds of the Bermuda Day Parade, where she was visited by people including Governor and Mrs. Fergusson and MP Jeff Sousa.

Judging by the smile seen on her face, Ms. Franks enjoyed the parade, which featured Gombey troupes, dance groups, majorettes, marching bands, floats, and more, all winding their way through the streets of Hamilton.

The parade took place following the traditional Bermuda Day Half Marathon and Sinclair Packwood Memorial Cycle Race, with each event seeing a number of winners crowned.

    A long life for this Lady.
    I am sure she has had her up’s and down’s and seen much.

    Only a couple of us will make it to such longevity.

    Bless her.

    As for Mockingjay I really think that when you do ‘hatch’ you won’t last long.
