Centennial Salute – John
May 1, 2019Jim Oswald

We wish John, a Meals on Wheels recipient, a Happy 100th Birthday! His daughter tells us he spent the day at the Bayview Senior Center where staff threw a party for him. Former SF Mayor Willie Brown even made a surprise appearance to celebrate with him.

Later that night, John and his daughter enjoyed dinner at The House of Prime Rib, where the staff made it clear that “when you turn 100, your meal is free!”
