12th Annual Montgomery County Virtual Centenarian Celebration
HEllo Montgomery County Centenarians!
We have not forgotten you! This year, due to COVID-19, we are holding a Virtual Celebration online for the entire month of May, featuring each of YOU on a poster, so you can watch it daily. Please click hereas soon as possible to upload your photos and new biographies. If you cannot do this yourself, please have someone do this for you. At the end of May, we have a beautiful gift for each of our Centenarians, so we ask for your mailing address. We also need a contact person, their email, and phone number.
Your images need to be high-resolution JPGs or PNGs, just like before, and your memoirs will be limited to 1500 characters (or 261 words). Your photos and new biographies will be featured on social media @HHSMontcoPA (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and right here on our website in the month of May. If you have questions about your photograph or biography, please contact Juliana Guarna. This information is due on or before April 19th.
Hopefully, next year we will be able to once again meet in person at our beautiful annual luncheon. Until then, stay well and know how much we miss you!
Centenarians are the fastest-growing segment of our population today. The number of Centenarians passing the age of 100 has doubled since 1990. While there are now about 131,000 Centenarians in the United States, it is projected that the number of Centenarians will total over ½-million by the year 2050.
Our Centenarians represent a special group of older residents who have lived long and strong over ten decades, weaving strong history and culture into the basic fabric of life as we know it today in Montgomery County.
Their legacy is seen in the strong Montgomery County families and communities supporting and serving our foundation as we move ahead in our daily lives.
We salute them and hope they will enjoy this special day creating another memory for a life well-lived!
