State Health Department Seeks Names of Montana Centenarians
State wants to honor residents at the annual Governor’s Conference on Aging
The Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) is seeking the names of Montanans who this year turn 100 or older so they can be honored at the annual Governor’s Conference on Aging held in Glasgow and Great Falls during the first week in May.

The deadline to submit Centenarian names to DPHHS for the upcoming conference is April 1. Centenarians are encouraged to attend either the Glasgow luncheon on May 7, or the Great Falls luncheon on May 9 to be honored.

“Our Montana Centenarians deserve to be recognized,” said DPHHS Director Richard Opper. “They all have such great stories to tell about their long and distinguished lives. We all can learn something from our state’s Centenarians. Please send us information about your Centenarian today!”

Those who reply will receive a Centenarian’s recognition proclamation from Governor Steve Bullock.

If you are a Centenarian or are aware of one and would like them to be recognized, please supply DPHHS with the following information. Submitted high-quality photos are also requested for use in the event program, in addition to replies to the following questions:

— Centenarian name and address.

— Where and when they were born? If not born in Montana, what is their story on how they got to Montana?

— What is the secret to their longevity?

— What has been the most amazing event in their life that they would like to share?

— What would their favorite quote be?

—Anything else they would like us to know?

— Will they be attending the luncheon? If so, in which city, Glasgow or Great Falls?

Send information to: Governor’s Conference on Aging - Centenarian, DPHHS – SLTC, P.O. Box 4210, Helena, 59604-4210. Or e-mail it to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
