Last November 20th numerous friends and family of Sara Erickson celebrated her 100th birthday with her at the Lake Ballinger Estates Condominium Clubhouse.
For all these years, Sara has been many things to many people: she was wife, mother (she has outlived a war veteran son, among others) grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, but in recent years (perhaps 10-15 or more years) has been a cheerful friend and inspiration to all the Paramount Park walkers, park and playfield users and visitors, by her daily presence and example.
She has been such an inspiration that park walkers nicknamed her "the Mayor of Paramount Park".
Sara was awarded a plaque of appreciation and inspiration by members of the Paramount Park walkers "unofficial club (meaning the folks who see each other and Sara at the park)".
