A birthday bouquet to celebrate 101 years, in Norwich

Norwich — Alice Caron, who had devoted her time to helping her fellow seniors, got a parade and flowers for her 101st birthday Thursday. 

City Mayor Peter Nystrom, wearing a mask due to the coronavirus pandemic, hand-delivered the bouquet after all six Norwich fire departments and the police department drove by Caron's home. Joined by her granddaughter, Erica Tremblay, and son-in-law, Ed Tremblay, she watched the procession from the deck.

Caron retired at age 97 from the Senior Resources Agency on Aging, where she helped seniors navigate Social Security and Medicare issues.
