Delaware County is searching for centenarians to be honored at its annual Centenarian Luncheon being held on Monday, May 16, 2022.
Residents turning 100 or older in 2022 are welcome to attend the Centenarian Luncheon at the Drexelbrook Banquet Center in Drexel Hill. In 2021, 26 centenarians attended the luncheon and staff of the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA) visited five centenarians in the community and mailed an additional 20 proclamations to centenarians.
“The County has been celebrating our centenarians for the past 20 years at the annual luncheon and it’s always a highlight of the year,” said Delaware County Council Chair Dr. Monica Taylor. “Its fun and also extremely inspiring to celebrate 100 years of life with our residents and hear their fascinating and remarkable stories.”
Centenarians and one guest are admitted for free. Additional guests may purchase tickets for $25.00 each. Guests also receive a commemorative photo from the day along with a special proclamation from Delaware County Council.
The organization or facility that brings the most centenarians to the luncheon will receive a cash prize. For more information or to register to attend the luncheon, please contact Debbie Hedgepeth at (610) 872-1406.
