WARWICK — The Warwick Valley Seniors Club requirement is that you must be age 60 or over.

But 90th birthday celebrations are common and very popular events.

And on Wednesday, April 5, that was also true for Marie Fernandez, a 20 year Warwick resident, who was born in Cuba in 1927.

At age 19, Fernandez immigrated to the United States with her husband, Mario, who passed away 10 years ago.

Fernandez worked for 20 years as a nutritionist for Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan.

She has four children, five grandchildren and four great grand children.

The celebration, cutting of the cake and everyone singing "Happy Birthday" took place at the spacious and modern facility that is the Warwick Senior Center, adjacent to the Town Hall on Kings Highway, which first opened in June 2005.

Anyone interested in joining or wanting additional information about the Seniors Club should call Marie Sisti at 986-9113.
