City to honor local centenarians

Know anyone 100 years of age or older???

The City of Richmond is looking for people 100 years of age and older to be honored during Mayor Jone’s third annual Centenarian1 Celebration on September 27th. Local centenarians will be honored for their community contributions, experience, and longevity.

“The City of Richmond embraces the opportunity to acknowledge those among us who have witnessed the events of the past century,” Mayor Jones said in a statement. “This remarkable group of Richmond residents is deserving of recognition as we can learn so much from their experiences and rich histories.”

Mayor Jones asked all residents to help the City find those “who have reached or will soon be the glorious age of 100.”

Local centenarians who’d like to be recognized should contact Yvette Jones at 804.646.3054 by September 5th.

The Centenarian Celebration is sponsored by the City’s Office on Aging and Persons with Disabilities.


  1. Not to be confused with Roman Centurions. Although one would think that should any centenarian centurions happen to live in Richmond, they’d be eligible for honor.
