The second round of recipients for the Bernando LaPallo Centenarian Award were announced at the Sixth Annual Senior Awards Luncheon hosted by Diana Gregory’s Outreach Services.

Miss Gregory also announced two exciting programs added in 2017 extending the outreach to single mothers and military veterans.
This years recipients, Jerrylean Mack and Vicky Moe join 2016 recipients Lula Ransom, Amber Pointe and Mary Cook. All recipients must be 100 years or older to receive the award.
