Generations come together to celebrate New York woman's 107th birthday

VALLEY STREAM, Long Island (WABC) -- Generations of a New York woman's family came together Thursday to celebrate a very big birthday.

Henrietta Dobin turns 107 years old on Friday, so Bristal Assisted Living hosted a birthday bash for her ahead of the big day.

Her children, grandchildren and great-grand children were all at the party to celebrate their matriarch.

Dobin has been a resident at the facility for the past two years after spending her life living in the Rockaways.

Believe it or not, she still works two days a week at the Nassau County Museum of Art on the weekends.

She also plays bridge three times a week, loves to go shopping for clothes and has regular lunch dates with friends.

She says there is no big secret to living a long, healthy life -- she says she has just been blessed.

"I have no secret but if I did I would charge and I would become a millionaire," she said.
