CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A local woman celebrated a huge milestone with her friends at Arbor Day Adult Day on Morgan on Thursday.

Pola Hernandez turns 100 years old on Saturday, and her friends at the adult day care center decided to throw her a party.

Hernandez was one of the first clients at the day care center, and she loves to spend her time playing bingo. She said the best thing she enjoys in her life is spending time with her children and grandchildren.

"Sometimes my grandsons, they cut my yard and I want to pay them, and they say, 'No! We want beans and rice,'" Hernandez said. "And that's what they like. They like enchiladas."

"She loves to play bingo. Her favorite thing here is playing chalupa, and she loves to play bingo," said Sandy Olivarez of Arbor Day Adult Day Care. "And she is good at it. She wins a lot."

Hernandez said one of the secrets to living a long life, is to not get sick.
