HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A FORCE OF NATURE ‘HURRICANE HAZEL’

Valentine’s Day is extra special for Hazel McCallion. The long time former mayor of Mississauga turns 99 today.

The recent Zoomer Magazine cover girl is showing no signs of slowing down. Like today for instance, coffee with friends, a celebration later at a community centre, and tonight the former hockey player will drop the puck at the Mississauga Steelhead’s game. She also had a big birthday bash this past weekend where 5 area mayors showed up with greetings. Hazel sits on a dozen boards and committees and says helping older people be independent and live a good life is one of her many goals. This day has been declared Hazel McCallion day across the province in her honour. Here’s to next year and 100 candles on the cake!
