100 years young: Local veteran asks for birthday cards to celebrate


CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – In just a few days, a special Women’s Army Corps Veteran will be celebrating her 100th birthday at a local living community, and you can be in on it.

On Feb. 25, Nyma “Lucy” Lane served for her country in World War II and will be turning 100. Harmony at State College is asking the community to send in birthday cards to help brighten the girl’s day.

Lane, who asked for fireworks, can be sent the birthday cards and well wishes to:

121 Havershire Blvd,
State College Pa. 16803.

“I think she’s really looking forward to this birthday because she said the only thing she wanted was fireworks. But we couldn’t do the fireworks, but we are doing everything else we can. We just want to make this day really special for her, so are trying to pull out all the stops,” said Life Enrichment Director Bambi Camacho.

While they may not arrive by Feb. 25, they will certainly bring a smile to her face when she opens them.
