Margaret Wachs was joined in the water by her daughter Elaine Matto, granddaughter Amy Weintraub, and great granddaughter Natalie Johaneson.

On an ordinary recent Friday at the Woodruff Family YMCA in Milford, Connecticut, Margaret Wachs got in the pool to swim 10 laps.  What was extraordinary was that it was her 100th birthday.
