100 YEARS YOUNG

So far, this summer has been quite busy for Schooner with the honor of inducting new members into its distinguished Centenarian Club. Schooner Camden resident, Irving Isaacson was welcomed into the club in recognition of his “100th”, August 7th birthday! He celebrated the big day with family at a local restaurant. He is the 3rd new member we have welcomed within the past several months.

Congratulations Mr. Isaacson!
