While out delivering, I was person- ally struck by their delight and their words of wisdom.
Words of advice overflowed. Stay normal. Be kind. Know your worth. Trust your instincts. Don't be afraid to take risks. Stay independent. Listen. Don’t worry so much. Always look forward. Join a church. Trust in God. Learn about technology and use it. Don’t work so hard. Enjoy your fam- ily. Be healthy. Don't smoke. Always help others. Collectively they said, “It’s going to be alright.”

Lets start with what is most import- ant: grand children. There is an aver- age of eight grand children, ten great grand children, and five great, great grand children per Centenarian, with the highest number of grands for just one Centenarian topping 70.
We at Senior Times are privileged to be a part of such a wonderful Centenarian recognition. I have taken their wisdom to heart. And above all, I believe “It’s going to be alright;” wisdom has said so.
Oh the changes they have seen over the years: the changes in wages, which started at $0.25 per hour, horses to tractors, motor vehicles, electricity, the end of World War II, television, seeing a man on the moon, air conditioning,

Sherii Sherban, Special to Senior Times A CENTURY OF WISDOM
A century of experiences is an incredible milestone. We are pleased to celebrate those in Calhoun County that have accumulated 100 years of wisdom. Our opportunity to recog- nize them this month grew out of the challenges of COVID and the cancel- lation of the annual Calhoun County Senior Services Centenarian birthday celebration. It was with excitement that we were able to develop a way to celebrate anyway. Additional partners including Senior Times, CareWell Services SW, and Plumeria came together to create a special day for each of those found on pages 12-13. Of the 37 in Calhoun County that we could find, just a few chose not to have their photo taken but did enjoy their celebratory gifts all the same including a special certificate signed by the Governor, a bouquet of flowers, additional gifts, and much joy.
