Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently joined with Councilwoman Jackie Gordon and Receiver of Taxes Corinne DiSomma to wish a happy 100th birthday to Anna Traina of Deer Park. A birthday party was held for Anna at the Manor Park Banquet Hall in Deer Park with her family and friends in attendance. Born on March 22nd, 1915, Anna raised five children with her husband Augustino in Ridgewood, New York. Now at 100 years of age, Anna is a loving grandmother to 18 grandchildren and 37 great grandchildren. Anna continues to live on her own unassisted, where she cooks, cleans and sews on her own. Anna continues to be known for her quick wit and knowledge of dates, names and places – which she is not shy to correct those around her about!
