CHAMPAIGN -- An area senior got a special surprise Friday morning. The Mettler Center treated Elizabeth Esser to a party for her 100th birthday. Esser goes to the center at lest three times a week.

She says staying active and healthy is what helped her reach this milestone. Esser has had some medical problems, but says they don't keep her from exercising.
