October 8, 2015–Southeast Georgia Health System Senior Care Center-Brunswick
hosted a Centenarian Day celebration on Tuesday, Sept. 22, to honor Annie
Stafford, age 102.
Stafford, lifelong resident of Brunswick, Georgia, has resided in the
Senior Care Center since February 26, 2014.
Friends, family and Abysinia Baptist church members participated in the
celebration, with many sharing life stories about Stafford and singing
hymns in her honor. The celebration continued with cake and punch.
National Centenarian’s Day is a day to honor those who are 100 years
of age or older. The day was originally proclaimed as a time to listen
to centenarians as they have so much rich history and wisdom to share.
Often, listening to their life stories proves the age-old saying that
with age comes wisdom.
