Turning 100 years of age is a major milestone and Tulare County Board of Supervisors recognized county seniors who have reached this milestone at its October 4 board meeting. Supervisors presented 21 proclamations to centenarians living throughout the county.

"Centenarians are gems within our community with years of experience and wisdom who have lived through ten decades of life and are examples of tenacity and perseverance - an inspiration to us all," said Tulare County Adult Services Division Manager Dayna Wild, who helped coordinate the event.

The honored centenarians included: Antonia and Raquel Alcala, Mae Ewert, Bonnie Jensen, Lora Lorene Porter, Lois Wright, Francisca Degracia, Enrique Zambrano, Mary Leal, Felipe Ibarra, Erika Fraga, Mildred "Mille" Sullivan, Betty Treaster, Juanita Gutierrez, Geraldine "Jerry" Soults, Astrid "Oz" Wagenshutz, Evangelina Diaz, Elvera Avila, Anita Soleno, Marie Kuchenbecker and Donna Gray.

In addition to Wild, the special recognition was organized by Client Advocate for Aging Services Bonnie Quiroz, Health and Human Services Unit Manager Rise VanTichelt and the Tulare County Board of Supervisors.
