Today is a very special day for one Slocomb resident.

Pokie Kirkland is celebrating her 102 birthday.

The Slocomb Senior Center hosted the big day by inviting all of Kirkland's friends out to the Center for cake and punch

During the party, Kirkland's niece credited her long life to a healthy lifestyle. She says, Kirkland didn't smoke, she didn't drink, and did not drink much soda. Instead, Kirkland would drink water and milk.

Kirkland is an active senior who comes to the center every day. Her friends say that her favorite activity is bingo and say that she wins almost every time she plays.
