Longtime Westporter Lee Greenberg today thanks fellow members of the Westport Rotary Club at its weekly meeting at Branson Hall for the celebratory recognition of her 98th birthday. Born Jan. 22, 1918, she said, “Thank you, 98. I could not wait to celebrate.” She added: “My motto is be wise, be wise, be wise—exercise, exercise, exercise ... Surely, I promise you I’ll be back next year.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

I love this woman! She is so alert and engaged at her young age. I had been gone from Westport for 8 months when I bumped into her late last summer on Block Island. She not only remembered me she called me by name and then said “we miss you at Rotary and the YMCA Rob!” What a gem. I really appreciated it when I would sit with Lee and Allen Raymond at the same table for Rotary. I never took that opportunity for granted, two wonderfully generous Westport supporters who were cast from the same mold! Happy Birthday Lee. I’ll see you on Block Island again this summer.
Happy Birthday Lee!! You deserve the best.
