John Jarosewicz, who has lived in Lynn, South Deerfield and now Whately, celebrated his 103rd birthday on Jan. 27 with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren at his home. He is the oldest citizen in both South Deerfield and Whately. His advice for a long life is to stay away from cigarettes and alcohol and remain active. He formerly worked for 40 years at General Electric in Everett, walked everywhere, played the accordian, and raised a large vegetable garden. He keeps busy working on word puzzles, following the news and exercising his right to vote.
