Marian Clark has seen and experienced a lot in a century of life.
The resident of the Langham Senior Citizens Care Home turned 100 years old on August 7. A birthday celebration in her honour was held at the home on August 10.

On Thursday, August 10, youngsters in Langham were busy building “balloon cars” on the lawn outside the Langham branch of the Wheatland Regional Library. It was the second stop of the day for the “Go! Science” outreach program workshop, having paid a visit to Waldheim earlier that morning.
