News Hour:

Three women at the same nursing home on Monday celebrated living more than 100 years with cake, songs and flowers while sharing their secrets of long life with friends, family and neighbors.

The three centenarians — Lucille Price, 100, Sophia Smith, 101, and Grace-Marie Baker, 102 — cut into a white cake while more than 50 people gathered at the Crown Heights Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in the borough of Brooklyn, reports Reuters.

After the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the crowd serenaded Baker, Smith and Price, all in wheelchairs, with “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

“We’re going to be celebrating life and the continuation of a celebration in our lives,” Claudia Titus, director of activities at the center, said of the party for the three.
