KALAMAZOO COUNTY CELEBRATES ELDERHOOD
The second annual CENTENARIAN LUNCHEON is planned for Friday, May 18th at The Beacon Club to honor Kalamazoo County centenarians.
If you or anyone you know was born in 1918 or before, please call now at 269.373.5147 to be included on our list of invitees.
Centenarians, and a family member, friend, or caregiver, will be invited to a lovely lunch and the chance to meet peers and even reconnect with old friends! Last year, our first luncheon for 100+ year olds, was a wonderful event. It was inspirational to learn from their wisdom and a privilege to pay tribute to them.
We are very excited to support this luncheon again. If needed, transportation to and from the event can be arranged.
For more information, please call Janice at 269.373.5147.
Photos from the 2017 Celebrate Elderhood events and the Centenarian interview video are posted on our Facebook page.
