happy birthdayYMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties had a big surprise in store for member Margaret Dellavalle when she arrived at the Deer Path branch for her exercise class on February 26. Dellavalle turned 100 years old on February 23, and when she arrived at the Y on Tuesday for her class, family, friends and Y staff were on hand to celebrate with balloons and refreshments, including birthday cake.

Dellavalle, who currently resides in Flemington, joined the Y two years ago and regularly attends Senior Stretch and Senior Dance classes.

“Margaret inspires me every time she is here,” said Jill Waskiewicz, Margaret’s group exercise instructor. “She always comes in with a smile on her face and is ready to go!”

When asked about her secret to being so vibrant and dynamic at the age of 100, Margaret’s advice was, “Live a good life and exercise!”
