Freeholder Brian D. Levine has announced that the county Office on Aging and Disability Services is looking to identify residents who will be age 100 or older in 2017.

“We are asking residents to help us honor the centenarians in our community,” said Freeholder Levine, human services liaison. “These resilient individuals, who have touched the lives of so many people over the last century, literally, are wonderful role models for future generations.”

Family members or caregivers of centenarians are asked to contact Elder Services Administrator Cynthia Voorhees at (908) 704-6349 or Voorhees@co.somerset.nj.us. Centenarian recognition forms can be found at: http://bit.ly/2017Centenarian. 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 Monday, May 22.

Each year, the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders participates in the national 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. This year’s national theme is “Age Out Loud.”
