Earl Smith became the newest member of Payson Care Center’s Century Club when he turned 101 years old. His son from Young and family from Arkansas came to help him celebrate. Mr. Smith, a retired underground copper miner from Miami, Ariz., still recalls stories from working deep into the mines for well over 20 years. He truly deserves the honor, respect and dignity earned through life’s challenges and triumphs. Pictured are Gene Smith, son, Earl Smith and Karen Schalte, Executive Director of Payson Care.
