While she may not have wanted a big celebration in her honor, the special occasion was still big news to many family and friends.

Local resident Eva Sampi celebrated her 100th Birthday during a party at the Beehive Home in Price on Tuesday afternoon.

Family, friends and fellow residents at Beehive Homes gathered together to wish Sampi a happy birthday complete with cake and other goodies.

Sampi said she didn't really want to celebrate the milestone birthday.

"Don't ask me," Sampi said in response to a question about reaching her 100th Birthday, "I just got here."

The Beehive Home resident still keeps active by walking around the building with the aid of a walker and other forms of exercising on a daily basis.

When not exercising, Sampi said she enjoys spending time with family and friends and mixes in a little gambling as well, including making the occasional trip to Wendover to play the slot machines.

While she may not have wanted a big celebration, Sampi said the party was fun.

"It was nice of them to do this for me, but I like to stay out of the limelight," she said.
