ABOUT 35 FRIENDS and family gathered on the Bristol village green on Sept. 16 to honor this small town’s three centenarians — from left, Gertrude Lathrop, Bill James and Hazel Devino. They all still reside in their own homes. The weather was cool but the atmosphere was warm and joyful. The Rev. Michael Kroll offered a blessing. Best wishes were offered and many pictures were taken.
