Released: June 2, 2021

Delaware County Council is searching for centenarians to honor at its annual Centenarian Luncheon which will be held on Monday, September 13, 2021. This will be the 18th year for this event and is always one of the highlights of the year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was not held in 2020 and we are excited to be able to celebrate our centenarians this year.

Anyone turning 100 or older in 2021 is welcome to attend this luncheon at the Drexelbrook Banquet Center. In 2019, 65 centenarians attended the luncheon and staff of the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging-COSA-visited 19 additional centenarians in the community.

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, contact Debbie Hedgepeth at (610) 872-1406.
