LIVINGSTON, NJ — CareOne Assisted Living in Livingston celebrated the 101st birthday of resident Mary Salaway, originally from Bayonne, over the past week.

Mayor Shawn Klein stopped by the facility on Friday to wish her a happy birthday, followed by her family, who celebrated her real birthday on June 5 with her meal of choice: hot dogs and cake.

“I was excited to channel my inner Willard Scott and have a wonderful opportunity to celebrate such a big birthday milestone,” said Klein. “Thanks for inviting me to your party, it was great to be there.”
