Somerset County Seeks to Identify Centenarians

Freeholder Robert Zaborowski, in conjunction with the Office on Aging and Disability Services, is looking to identify residents who are, or will be, centenarians this year. Responses are requested by Friday, May 2.

“We are asking residents to help the Office on Aging and Disability Services honor Somerset County centenarians,” said Freeholder Zaborowski, human services liaison. “It is our privilege to pay tribute to residents who have observed and participated in the growth of our county community.”

Family members or caregivers should complete a recognition form which can be obtained from the county Office on Aging and Disability Services or by following this link.

Completed forms may be faxed to 908-595-0194 or mailed to the attention of Cynthia Voorhees, Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services, P.O. Box 3000, Somerville, NJ 08876. The deadline is Friday, May 2.

A free luncheon to honor Somerset County centenarians will be held Wednesday, May 21, at the Regency Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Franklin Township. Centenarians may also invite up to three guests. Centenarians and their families are urged to complete the recognition form before the deadline.

The Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders participates each year in the nationwide celebration of Older Americans Month. Established in 1963, Older Americans Month recognizes the contributions of individuals age 60 and above who enrich and strengthen our nation’s communities.
