Department Of Elderly Affairs Seeks Centenarians

CRANSTON --- Calling all centenarians….

The Governor's Centenarians Brunch will be held on Wednesday, May 4 at the Village at Elmhurst, Providence (10:00 a.m.). This observance is the centerpiece of Rhode Island's traditional celebration of May as Older Americans Month. This year's theme of "Celebrate Long Term Care Living" mirrors Rhode Island's ceremony honoring the contributions of centenarians to our culture and society.

You can also e-mail larry@dea.state.ri.us. Please provide the name, address, and telephone number of the centenarian and the name, address, and telephone number of the person who will escort the centenarian to this joyous celebration of life. See you at the Governor's Centenarians Brunch.
