9 seniors at Edina retirement home now over 100 years old

Watch this celebration at an Edina nursing home for a group of women who have marked many milestones.

EDINA, Minn — We received a note from an employee at the York Gardens Senior Living that prompted us to share this birthday celebration with our viewers.

Here's the note:

"The senior community where I work has a very unusual occurrence – we have 9 residents that range in age from 100 – 105!

The 9th birthday was yesterday (Thursday) and interestingly, these residents are all women. These ladies are an incredible group, with some very amazing life stories.

We are hosting a party for them all together at the end of January, "Cheers to 100 Years!" Together they represent 911 years!

Please let me know if you have questions or if this is something that would be of interest to you as you consider topics for your stories. We'd love to honor and celebrate these 9 women in every way we can!"
