From the newsroom

If you don't know her already, meet Newmarket icon, hall of famer and clock tower saviour Margaret Davis. Chiefy — as she is fondly called by her family — was feted by family and friends for her 100th birthday with a party, where she didn't hesitate to take to the podium for more than 20 minutes to share some of her life stories. She told a few more to reporter Elizabeth Keith, as well as her secret to healthy aging and the best part about 'getting old.'
