(ABC 6 News) -- In today's world, living an entire century is quite the accomplishment.

After more than nine whole decades, two Grand Meadow sisters are still throwing birthday parties with their friends and family.

95-year old Beulah and 100-year old Alvena had their celebration at Grand Meadow Lutheran Church today.

The sisters had posters and pictures of one another that dated back as early as the 1920s.

Beulah was born in 1919 and Alvena was born in 1914.

Alvena loves that her family and friends celebrate with them, "My family is here and so are many many friends. That pleases me."

Both sisters were born in Iowa and then moved to Minnesota.

Two Grand Meadow sisters celebrate long lives with friends and family.
