Joe Darer turns 100 on Dec. 23 and is already planning a big birthday bash. He has much to celebrate — becoming a centenarian, his 75-year marriage, two children, four grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and a whole lot of friends.
His circle of friends, large to begin with, grows every time he performs at weekly harmonica concerts at Traditions, the West Palm Beach assisted living center where lives.
