Centenarian Day was observed in Dominica on Friday 23rd September 2022.
As part of its activities to mark the occasion, the Dominica Council on Ageing (DCOA) attempted to visit and make presentations to all fourteen of the country’s living centenarians in order to celebrate the lives and contributions of these Nature Isle gems.
Not all of the planned visits took place, but Dominica News Online (DNO) travelled with the DCOA team and was able to stream live on our Facebook page, the eight encounters that occurred.
For the benefit of those readers who have not seen them, a playlist of the live stream videos are posted below.
