2014 Century Club


Family Staffing Solutions established the “CENTURY CLUB OF RUTHERFORD COUNTY” in 2012, honoring those residents who have reached the age of 100 plus. We celebrate these Centenarians each year. A proclamation decreeing the last Thursday of every July be named “Centenarian Appreciation Day.” This year, we celebrated 13 ladies whose ages range from 100 to 104 years of age. Eight of these centenarians were present at the Embassy Suites along with city, county, and state dignitaries presenting certificates and awards. The honorees were given a corsage, a gift bag with nostalgic items including an Christmas ornament of the Rutherford County Courthouse by the County Mayor Ernest Burgess. A copy of the proclamation was also given to each centenarian, and a Centenarian Award signed by Governor Bill Haslam was presented by Senator Jim Tracy.
These historians have lived through World Wars, Depression, 18 US Presidents have been elected in their lifetime. They have seen inventions of all kinds that we take for granted today. Hard time and hard work are no stranger to these ladies. How very fortunate we are to have been part of their life that one day and to have heard and shared their stories….just a wonderful day. Cake and coffee was enjoyed by all. Congratulations to our centenarians!!
