Nursing home hosts ‘century march’ for 100-year-olds
100 years is a crowning achievement and a good excuse for the parade of the century at Good Samaritan Society – Windom in Minnesota.
“This is our one king,” Lindsey O’Brien, Society activities supervisor, says as she puts a sash and crown on resident Leo Mau.
The 102-year-old is one of nine residents turning 100 or more this year. All are celebrating with a special march.
First, you have to look the part.
“Do I look OK?” resident Dorothy Gulbrandson (102) says with uncertainty in her voice.
Lindsey, outfitting everyone with their royal attire, quickly replies, “You look gorgeous. I promise.”
