DRAPER, Utah -- The Centenarian Club is an elite order: no one under the age of 100 is allowed in.

Every year, the governor throws a party for Utah's oldest citizens. This year, FOX 13 News' Dave Nemeth attended the 28th annual celebration in Draper and gleaned some wisdom from the hundreds of years' worth of experience in the room.

The most senior member of the Centenarian Club was Anna Manusco, 110. Dave asked her for her secret to living such a long life, and she said: "I don't know, I don't know. I guess I'm a bad girl."

Another member, Walter Bailey, 102, held his infant grandson, more than a century younger than him.

The festivities included a luncheon, music, and an opportunity to spend a few minutes with Governor Herbert.
