On Saturday, June 26, the Hernando community honored their elders by providing an elegant luncheon to pay homage to seniors 80 years and older. 

The Celebration was titled, “Hernando’s Eldest and Finest.” They were treated to food, music and gifts as a token of appreciation for their contributions to the community and the positive influence they’ve had on the succeeding generations.
