They say the first century is the
hardest, and Lynn Phillips (left) is almost there. She celebrated her 99th birthday with friends and neighbors on Aug. 20 in front of her home in Mutual 12. Hui O Hula was there to entertain. Among the songs danced was “Young at Heart,” as Lynn has always been just that. A big cake was enjoyed by all. Lynn has been a LW resident since March 1988 after the passing of her husband of 45 years. She loved square dancing and was on the women's bowling league. Lynn was also the HCC's switchboard operator for 20 years, receiving several employee awards during that time. She handed over her headset in 2009, but she continued to do volunteer work at the library and HCC until 2013.
