Last Tuesday was a special day for Rhetta Mountjoy — so special that by the time it was nearly over, the date will forever more in Anderson County be named for her.

Family, friends and even Anderson County’s elected leaders helped her celebrate her 100th birthday at her home at 1481 Fox Creek Road.
