In an effort to recognize Iowans who are celebrating 100 years or more of life, Governor Terry Branstad and the Iowa Department on Aging are launching a call for centenarians and are planning a number of regional Centenarian Recognition events throughout the state.
For the purposes of this program, a centenarian is any older adult who will be 100 or older by Dec. 31, 2016, and whose primary residence is Iowa.
To assist the State of Iowa in recognizing centenarians, the public is encouraged to inform a centenarian, or the person’s family or caregiver, about this call for centenarians and where to access and submit an application. The application is posted on the Iowa Department on Aging’s website at www.iowaaging.gov or may be requested by calling 800.532.3213 or emailing Danika.Welsch@iowa.gov.
Each centenarian will receive a signed certificate from Governor Branstad that is suitable for framing and will be invited to attend a Centenarian Recognition event sponsored by the Iowa Department on Aging and Iowa’s Area Agencies on Aging later this fall.
