Cards arrive from around the world for West Shore 100 years

About 100 cards have arrived for the woman who turns 100 on Sunday

When Anita Troop officially turns 100 on Sunday, she will have already racked up a host of birthday wishes from around the world.

Cards started pouring in via Canada Post after her little niece Marina Miller – also a pretty fantastic niece if that move is any indication – posted a request on Facebook.

“She is blown away by the kindness of the community and felt connected to others and felt so loved. A nice reminder of what a stamp can do, ”Miller told Black Press Media. “She has an amazing heart for people, she already collects every address with a return – so we can write thank you cards.”

With around 100 cards in hand on Friday, the Millstream Road resident has already received greetings from the Prime Minister and Prime Minister and is awaiting a royal message.

Posts are also piling up on public social media pages.

“It was my pleasure taking care of Anita in the health field a few years ago, and she is one of the cutest, sweetest people I have ever met! I am delighted to hear that she is thriving. I would like to send him a birthday message! Jennifer Lush wrote on the popular Old Victoria BC Facebook page.

This post alone contains over 80 wishes and Troop’s mailing address, which means traditional postcards could continue to arrive well past his 100th birthday on June 20.
