The town's oldest residents were honored yesterday at the seventh annual Nonagenarian Tea, held at the Franklin Senior Center.

Seniors age 90 and up gathered in the morning, surrounded by their families, to celebrate their gifted lives.

Thirty seniors were given a rose and a citation, with Franklin Town Council member Bob Vallee present to hand out the citations.

"Congratulations to all of you," Vallee said. "You are all truly blessed."

Senior Center Director Karen Alves served as master of ceremonies and gave special recognition to the two centenarians present at the tea.

Helen Beghosian, 104, who still cooks and goes for walks, and Lilian Pisani, 100, were given bouquets to recognize their vitality.
