Luncheon to honor county's centenarians

October 09, 2006

On Wednesday, Nov. 1, the Washington County Commission on Aging will host a Centenarian Luncheon in honor of all individuals in the county who are or will be 100 years of age or older this year.

The event will include a luncheon provided by some of Hagerstown's best restaurants, barbershop chorus entertainment, individual recognition of honorees and a photo session. Each honoree will receive a gift bag and a personalized memory book. Individual birthday greetings from Gov. Robert Ehrlich and President Bush will be distributed and the deputy director of the Maryland Office on Aging will be in attendance.

Weather permitting, antique cars will be on display and drivers will be available to take honorees for short rides. Individual photos will be taken, framed and delivered to the honorees within a week or two following the event. Each centenarian is invited to have a friend or family member accompany them.

Any Washington County resident who falls within the age category is encouraged to participate. If a centenarian is unable to attend, the Commission on Aging would still like to be contacted with information so recognition items can be delivered to their place of residence.

For more information, call Hannah Cramer, Commission on Aging deputy director, at 301-790-0275, ext. 209, no later than Wednesday, Oct. 18.
