Sarasota resident Sol Carson celebrated his 100th birthday Friday, Aug. 15, at the Jewish Family and Children's Services of Sarasota, Inc. The birthday party included a cake, singing and family.
Carson, a South Philadelphia native, lives in Sarasota with his son, Charles. He served in the Army Air Force in World War II and has been part of the JFCS Senior Outreach Services Program for eight years.
While eating his chocolate cake, one of his favorite flavors, Carson shared his secret to living so long: "Live life fully."
