Happy 100th, Eloise Reilly!

In the midst of a grave health crisis, it’s important to celebrate milestones.

Which is exactly what Eloise Reilly’s friends and neighbors did on Sunday. (From a safe but loving distance, of course.)

After all, it’s not every day someone turns 100 years old.

Eloise — a longtime Westporter, and still-very-active community member — topped off her radiant look with a sparkling pink tiara.

“Eloise has seen a lot in her lifetime,” say her friends Darren and Sally Spencer, who tied a joyful banner around her house.

“But she always keeps a positive attitude. That should serve as a great lesson for all of us.”

It does indeed.

Happy birthday, Eloise, from your many fans in 06880 and beyond!
