DPHHS needs help updating Centenarian list


Governor's Conference on Aging is May 1 in Helena

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) needs help updating its list of Montanan's who will turn age 100 and older by the end of 2012.

DPHHS maintains a list of the state's Centenarians so they can be honored every year at Montana’s annual Governor’s Conference on Aging.

This year, the Centenarians will be honored on May 1, 2012 at a luncheon in Helena at the Colonial Red Lion Hotel. The most current list from 2011 features 89 Centenarians.

“Even if they cannot attend the conference, we would like to honor them with a certificate from the Governor and add them to our list,” said DPHHS Director Anna Whiting Sorrell. “We request just a little bit of information and the questions can be found on our Web site.”

The information can be found at www.dphhs.mt.gov

If you are a Centenarian or are aware of one and would like them to be recognized, please supply us the following information by April 2, 2012. Submitted photos are also requested, in addition to replies to the following questions.

  1. Centenarian name and address.
  2. Where and when they were born?  If not born in Montana, what is their story on how they got to Montana?
  3. What is the secret to their longevity?
  4. What has been the most amazing event in their life that they would like to share?
  5. What would their favorite quote be?
  6. Anything else they would like us to know?
  7. Will they be attending the luncheon?  Please RSVP if possible.

The following are the Centenarians recognized in 2011.
