Erna Hamm is ringing in her 94th birthday in a rather adventurous way.
The Penticton woman spent Saturday zipping at ZipZone Peachland, Canada’s Highest Freestyle Zipline.
“All of the staff just loved her and it was such an honor and a pleasure to celebrate Erna’s birthday with her and we sure hope to see her again next year,” said ZipZone president Kevin Bennett.
Day-to-day Hamm keeps active through hiking and volunteering 11 hours a week at the Penticton hospital.
