Recently Gramercy resident John Abreo reached a milestone that few can lay claim. He celebrated his 100th birthday. St. James Parish President Pete Dufresne recognized Abreo at a council meeting and personally delivered a plaque to commemorate the occasion. When asked what his key to a long life was, he said, “My wife prayed for me to live to 100 years old. And drinking at least one, if not two old fashioned cocktails daily.”
