Reaching the age of 100 is an amazing accomplishment and something deserving of recognition. It is the reason that the Danville community came together this week to honor its residents who have been alive for more than 100 years.
Bowman Estates, an assisted living facility in Danville, held a Centenarian Celebration in which members of the community who have reached the amazing milestone were honored. Danville Mayor Scott Eisenhaur was on hand to deliver a proclamation designating April 10th as Centenarian day in the city.
For 101 year old Virginia Thomas, who was one of seven women recognized at the event, getting to take part was an amazing opportunity.
