Given that turning 100 years is not an easy milestone, the community came together to celebrate them with a drive-by parade as a way of observing COVID-19 regulations.

Residents of Prince George's county mounted decorations and posters on their cars with birthday wishes for the centenarians.

The twins were also given gift baskets, flowers and balloons, as well as gift cards from their favorite restaurant Bob Evans.

“I don’t feel like I’m old or tired or run down. Fifty I felt fine, and I feel like I’m 50 years old. I don’t know,” one of them said, as reported by Newsner.
“Probably because we took care of ourselves,” another added.

The twins attribute their long life to good genes - their mother died aged 103 - a positive attitude, and a healthy lifestyle.

One of them also added another interesting revelation, that alcohol has had a role to play in their age.

“Drinking beer and sangria helps you healthy and live longer,” she explained.

It is also impressive to note that even at 100 years old, Evelyn and Elaine are quite tech-savvy.

Both use iPhones and can comfortably operate computers for online transactions as well as playing games.
