In 1908, the first Ford Model T was produced. In 1908, Theodore Roosevelt was in his second-to-last of his presidency. And in 1908, Miriam Rosen Minsker was born in East Aurora.

Minsker turned 108 years old on Tuesday with a celebration in the atrium of Beechwood Homes in Getzville.

Minsker received a proclamation from Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and Amherst Town Supervisor Barry Weinstein.

Cheers to 108 years!
