The county Office on Aging and Disability is looking for centenarians to honor. The deadline to respond is May 2.

“We are asking residents to help the Office on Aging and Disability Services honor Somerset County centenarians,” Somerset County Freeholder Robert Zaborowski, human services liaison, said in a release. “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.

Centenarians may invite up to three guests to the luncheon. 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.

For more information or to nominate a centenarian, contact Cynthia Voorhees at 908-704-6349 or Voorhees@co.somerset.nj.us.
