A group of family and friends is celebrating more than Independence Day this weekend.

Ethel Dye received a key to the city of Parkersburg Friday afternoon in honor of her 102nd birthday.

Dye has lived in Wood County her entire life, and we had the opportunity to ask her what her secret is to living a long, healthy life.

"I don't have no secrets. I worked on the farm my entire life. I never worked in the factory or nothing. I just worked, and if a neighbor was sick or something, I'd go to them," Dye said.

Five generations of Dye's family were on hand at her birthday celebration.
