Resident celebrates 100th birthday

Centenarian Anna Dillard was recently celebrated in her 100th birthday in style. Prior to Rockdale County's BOC proclamation of Nov. 16 as Anna Dillard, Dillard's most recent claim to fame was her dance performance to "Brick House" in the Senior Idol Talent Show. Arriving at the Olivia Haydel Senior Center in her signature red suit, Dillard was greeted by a huge crowd of family, friends and well-wishers also sporting red in her honor. Along with the customary cake and balloons, Dillard was also serenaded by several friends. She thanked God for her good health and loving children. Dillard has four children, 18 grandchildren and many great and great-great grandchildren.
