Arlene “Nan” Brann-Brown greets well-wishers Sunday during a 100th birthday celebration in her honor at her house in West Gardiner. She was the recipient of the town’s Boston Post Cane in 2018, awarded to the oldest resident in West Gardiner. She says she still attends church services regularly, does her own housework, including sweeping her driveway, and likes to pursue wild game in season. She is a member of the Maine Big Buck Club, a distinction awarded those who have bagged a deer weighing at least 200 pounds. “I’ll never give up hunting,” she says. Several relatives attended the celebration, including fifth-generation descendants. Andy Molloy/Kennebec Journal
