Resident Julia Kamerick will turn 108 years young on May 19th. She plans to celebrate with the other May birthdays at Vriendschap Village as well as at an additional party planed by her nephew’s wife.
When asked what was the secret to living such a long life, Kamerick replied that she did not know why she has lived so long, but credits her longevity to the grace of God.
“For some reason I’ve lived this long because God has a purpose for me here yet,” she said.
