What happens in a Century? What stories can be told about the world they grew up in, the families they had, the work they did and the changes that happened around them? We would like to celebrate the wisdom, knowledge and accomplishments that happen over a lifetime. And when someone turns 100 years old it’s time for a celebration!
To honor those turning 100 years old this year, and those that have reached the milestone already, we are inviting them to come to Thornapple Manor for a birthday party on Thursday, July 12 at 2 p.m. There will be cake, ice cream and a special gift for each centenarian.
We will have a few other surprises for those that attend the two hour event.
The Gilmore Care Museum will have a motor car made in 1918. They will also have a 1958 vehicle in honor of Thornapple Manor’s year-long 60th anniversary celebration.
We invite all Centenarians and their families to join us in the Agnes M. Hollister Courtyard on Thursday, July 12 at 2 p.m.
Parking will be in the South (back) parking lot with signs leading to the courtyard. Look for the antique cars!
