WEST PALM BEACH, FL – “Live life to the fullest,” advises 100 year old Helena Phillips. The West Palm Beach resident was given an unlimited 17 day admission pass to the 2012 South Florida Fair which celebrates its Centennial January 13-29 on the South Florida Fairgrounds off Southern Boulevard. It’s one of the Fair’s many new promotions to mark the special observance. Any person 100 or older will be offered unlimited and free admission.
Phillips was born in 1911 in Ipswich, Massachusetts, but moved to and was raised in Lynn, Massachusetts. She’s been a South Florida resident for 6 years. Most of her adult professional life was spent as an elementary school teacher, but also included stints of teaching Latin to middle school students.
What are her keys to longevity?
“I was fortunate, worked hard and have good genes,” the sprightly Phillips said. She reads frequently and enjoys working crossword puzzles and cryptographs. On occasion, she’ll enjoy wine when going out for dinner. A Mom of 2, she was married for over 40 years.
Are you 100 or older? Do you know someone who is? Contact the South Florida Fair Public Relations Office at (561) 795-6408 or email@example.com. A Fair representative will be delighted to process a complimentary 17 day admission Pass.
