Local Resident Celebrates 100th Birthday

Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens was honored to celebrate Ms. Ruth Bratton’s 100th birthday. Ms. Bratton lives in Bluefield, VA with her great-grandson, Jeff Adams. When AASC asked Ms. Bratton what her secret to aging so well was she explained, “I have just worked all my life. I’ve canned everything from corn to green beans to beets.”

Ms. Bratton celebrated with family and friends at Ryan’s Restaurant in Bluefield, VA. Pictured is Ms. Bratton and Chase Meade-Patton, Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens’ Public Relations Manager. Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens celebrates all local Centenarian residents. If you know of anyone celebrating their 100th birthday please contact AASC at 276.964.4915.
