Encinitas resident and Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA member, Ernie Fowler, was all smiles on Jan. 15 for his 100th birthday. Ernie celebrated at the YMCA with a workout – he still exercises multiple times per week at the Y – followed by a party in his honor. Ernie cut cake for all of his friends and shared his hilarious words of wisdom for enjoying a long life, including eating whatever his teeth can chew and cutting out stress by not working. Ernie is a big part of the YMCA family and the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA was thrilled to throw such a special birthday party for a very honorable member.
