The annual Celebration of Age event honors all those who have turned 90 or above in the past year. That group includes more than 85 people who are living independently in apartments and cottages on the community's campus.
In addition, the Lighter Side Players — the drama club at Garden Spot Village — entertained the celebrants with a skit and a song.
