What could be better than a ride on a Harley for your 90th birthday?December 12, 2012 4:56am
Mary Molony arrives in style for her 90th birthday at the Seymour Senior Citizens Hall on November 24, on the back of a motorbike piloted by Peter Kanters of Avenel.
It would have been hard to top how Mary Molony celebrated her 80th birthday — but it was a close-run thing a decade later.
Mrs Molony turned 90 on November 19, and for a celebration at Seymour Senior Citizens’ Hall a few days later, it was decided to give her an unforgettable present.
‘‘For her 80th her surprise was going parachuting in Nagambie,’’ son Michael said.
‘‘She just loved that and she’s a bit of a thrillseeker — so what could be better for your 90th than a ride on the back of a Harley (Davidson motorbike).’’
The long-time Avenel resident moved back to Seymour earlier this year, but it was arranged for Avenel’s Peter Kanters to pick her up to take her to the party.
‘‘She didn’t want to get off,’’ Mr Molony said.
‘‘She enjoyed it and one of the girls who works for me said she saw her at an intersection and she had a grin from ear to ear.’’
Mr Kanters delivered Mrs Molony to the celebration where about 60 guests from as far afield as Queensland gathered for a great afternoon.
But what next?
‘‘We’re trying to work out what to do for her 100th,’’ Mr Molony said.
