Two women are meeting a special milestone over at Charter Senior Living in Bowling Green.

The assisted living facility celebrated Margaret Key, who's hitting her 100th birthday on Labor Day, and Edythe Hummell, who turned 102 on Wednesday.

The two both had many stories to share, as they reflected on their lives and the memories they had made.

"I've had a good life, I'm proud of it. I haven't always been proud of some of the things I've done but, nothing bad, just stupid, I guess," Margaret Key smiled.​

Staff and the other residents were excited to join in the celebration.

Staff said these individuals share what to pursue in life, what to stay away from, and ultimately, what's important to them.

"I can do that!" said Edythe Hummell. "That's my favorite expression. That's how I got my first job."

Ultimately, staff said, it's wisdom that you can find from a centenarian.
