On August 28, cars lined up and drove past the home of Evie Poole, honking their horns and waving to celebrate a momentous occasion: her 100th birthday.

Evie was born in Mt. Gilead on August 28, 1920, and grew up in the Pinoka community.

She was the next to the youngest child out of seven born to Joseph and Nanny “Ingold” Story.
