Albany -- A special birthday for one Albany woman Saturday, as she turns 106 years old.

Jessie Lemon got her birthday celebration revved up Friday. The Flint River Harley Davidson Owners Group sang Happy Birthday to her.

Mrs. Lemon is proud she still lives by herself, and her mind is sharp. She says the Lord has blessed her because she helped others. Lemon said "I moved her in a mule and wagon. And you know I didn't have much. But look at me now."

The motorcycle group gave her several pieces of Harley Davidson clothing.

The SOWEGA Council on Aging threw her a party with cake and her favorite lunch, Krystal hamburgers.
