Mayor Mike Davis visited Dunwoody Pines Retirement that day to wish Mary Farmakis a happy birthday. Farmakis, who turned 100 years old on Sept. 19, was also honored with a key to the city and the proclamation designating Sept. 19 as Mary Farmakis Day in Dunwoody. Farmakis accepted the proclamation to much applause from Dunwoody Pines residents and staff, amid a sea of gold and blue balloons. Her reaction was one of both surprise and joy. She attributes her long life to always being honest, and having the company of family and good friends.
