Bronx Week Centenarian Celebration

  Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. held his annual Centenarian Celebration to honor the 41 Bronxites who have passed the 100 year mark of their life. The oldest member of this club is 107 year old Joe Binder. Joe was called up front  by BP Diaz to tell a few jokes as has been done for the past few tears. The jokes Joe tells are could be called adult, and you will see the reaction of Deputy BP Greene in one of the photos. We hope to see all 41 current Centenarians next year with some more new member to the group.
