Lapierre, who grew up in Concord, served in the Army during World War II, returned home in 1946 and worked in the Concord Police Department until 1971. The celebration was attended by retired and current police officers, as well as veterans and family members including two great-grand children, but another family celebration will be held on Lapierre's official 100th birthday on November 30. He is the oldest resident at the New Hampshire Veterans Home.
