The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut is looking for individuals in our community who will celebrate their 100th birthday in 2015 or who have already passed this milestone. The Agency will host a special luncheon on May 6th to honor and celebrate the lives of these centenarians.
To request an invitation for a centenarian you know, please visit www.aoascc.org under news & events or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The AASCC 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, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act (OAA), the focus is on how older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communities, and making a positive impact in the lives of others.
