HUNDREDS OF YEARS worth of pure Bajan experience was packed into one room yesterday as 25 centenarians gathered for an Independence celebratory luncheon.

Held at Accra Beach Hotel, it was hosted by the National Committee on Ageing and toasted 25 of the island’s 150 centenarians with a host of special messages, entertainment and fine dining.
