HAZLET - A birthday party was held in Hazlet Wednesday for some Monmouth County residents celebrating an incredible milestone.

The group of 15 people will turn 100 this year. Families were invited to attend the event honoring 13 women and two men.
To honor their lives, the Monmouth County Division on Aging and Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Center hosted a "Centenarian Birthday Party."

Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers hosts several of these a year throughout the state, and they are open to those turning 100 and older.
