Maryland county throws birthday party for 100-year-old twins

A Maryland county threw a birthday party for a set of local twins who celebrated their 100th birthday earlier this year.

Prince George’s County put on the drive-by party for Elaine Foster and Evelyn Lowe as part of the Office of Community Relations’ annual “100 Events of Summer” initiative.

Foster and Lane, who were born and raised in the county, received flowers, balloons, gift baskets and gift certificates to their favorite restaurant at the celebration.

The two said they are planning to use the gift certificates for sangria.

The twins attributed their long lives to taking care of themselves and getting yearly check-ups from their doctors.
