The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut (AOASCC) is looking for individuals in our community who will celebrate their 100th birthday in 2017 or who have already passed this milestone. The Agency will host a special luncheon on May 3rd to honor and celebrate the lives of these centenarians. To request an invitation for a centenarian you know, please visit www.aoascc.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
AOASCC holds this luncheon in recognition of Older Americans month. Older adults have made countless contributions and sacrifices to ensure a better life for future generations. Since 1963 communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. This celebration recognizes older Americans for their contributions and demonstrates our nation’s commitment to helping them stay healthy and active.
This year the theme focus on how older adults in our community are redefining aging—through work or family interests, by taking charge of their health and staying independent for as long as possible, and through their community and advocacy efforts. There is no month, or theme, more fitting for our annual celebration of the centenarians in our communities.
The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut is an independent non-profit organization serving older adults, individuals with disabilities and caregivers in greater New Haven and the lower Valley. Our mission is to empower adults to remain as independent and engaged as possible within their communities through advocacy, information, and services.
