On Saturday, May 10, 2014, the family and friends of Bernice Allegre came together to celebrate her 100th birthday with a party at the Bunola Fire Company.

Bernice Allegre was presented with an award by the Veterans of the VFW and American Legion for 100 years of volunteer service to the community.
Often fondly called the 'sweetheart of Bunola,' Bern was born and has lived all of her life in Bunola. Although there was an invited guest list, word spread quickly, and Bern welcomed nearly the entire community to celebrate her birthday.
 
Many friends and family from all over also attended.
Bern has been a part of many lives over the years. Many who attended her party had not seen the other in years, so just about everyone spent the afternoon reminiscing old times and catching up on each others' lives. The sound of laughter, happy faces, hugs, handshakes, and kisses were the order of the day.
 
Ever an avid flee marketer, Bern still spends the weekends shopping at sales and always enjoys a good bargain. Her twinkling blue eyes and ready smile always light up a room.
 

A true friend to many, she has always been there to help someone. Many hours of her lifetime were spent with the other women at the Bunola Fire Company cooking, working and attending the bingo, and providing any other help that a friend or the community might need. Hundreds of jars of her home made strawberry jam given as gifts have pleased the taste buds of many over the years and were a topic of discussion. She has also been a friend to the local veterans, many of whom she has know all of their lives. In honor of her 100th birthday, the veterans presented her with an award for '100 Years of Volunteer Service to the Community.'
