Thirteen women, all over the age of 100, were honored at the 3rd annual Century Club celebration on July 31, 2014 at Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro. The event, sponsored by Family Staffing Solutions, honored the contributions of these women to the community over their 100+ years. The oldest honoree was 104 and the average age of this year’s group was 102 years young!

Honorees enjoyed “birthday cake,” coffee and a special video presentation about their lives and the history of Rutherford County. Proclamations from Governor Bill Haslam and Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland were also presented to each honoree. Mayor McFarland, Rutherford County Mayor Ernest Burgess, Tennessee Senator Jim Tracy and Rutherford County Historian Greg Tucker provided remarks.

Family Staffing Solutions is proud to sponsor this event and take the lead in the effort to recognize the countless contributions of the community’s oldest citizens.
