‘It’s overwhelming’: Drive-by parade celebrates Woburn woman’s 101st birthday

WOBURN, MASS. (WHDH) - A Woburn woman got a drive-by parade Sunday to celebrate her 101st birthday.

Lillian Braudis said the parade of cars past the New Horizons Senior Living Facility was a big surprise.

“It’s overwhelming, to tell you the truth,” Braudis said. “Fortunately I’ve had very good health, I didn’t notice the years passing by.”

Braudis also said she felt honored that Woburn’s mayor came by with flowers and a proclamation.

“The mayor came to see me, I really feel like a big shot now,” she said.
