Friends and family gathered in Seymour to recognize an amazing century’s worth of life.

Charlotte “Lottie” Mitchell was the guest of honor. The woman was celebrating her 100th birthday, delighted to be surrounded by dozens of people at her home at the Covered Bridge Health Campus.

“That was about the highlight of the party,” said Claude Mitchell, Charlotte’s son.
