'I may act 20 but I'm still 95'

A LOCAL socialite has just celebrated her 95th birthday and today she shared her secret to living a long, healthy life.

Bundaberg's Mavis Scherer has always lived in the Rum City, and is an active community member in more ways than one.

Known as Mama Mavis, she loves baking, line dancing, and organising a yearly Christmas concert for her fellow Argyle Gardens residents.

When friends and family pop by her home, they can always expect to find a variety of cookies and cakes sitting on a little trolley in the dinning room. She even used to submit recipes to the NewsMail when the paper featured a weekly cooking segment.

Ms Scherer grew up playing hockey, basketball and vigoro at Hinkler Park, and now partakes in social line dancing at the Brothers Sports Club.
