Mayor Bowser to Honor District Centenarians

DC Seniors, Ages 100 years or Older, to be Recognized as Living Treasures

(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Friday, April 28, at 12 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will host the Annual Salute to DC Centenarians, a luncheon to honor the tremendous contributions to family, community, and Washington, DC at-large made by more than 40 centenarians who were identified by the public. 
 
Since taking office in 2015, Mayor Bowser launched innovative initiatives as part of Age-Friendly DC - a coordinated, comprehensive, and collective-action effort to ensure that all DC residents are active, connected, healthy, engaged, and happy in their environment. The Bowser Administration has made significant progress with investments in housing, health, public safety, inclusion and economic stability to promote longevity, dignity, and choice for the District’s oldest residents, such as implementing the Safe at Home program and funding senior apartments as part of the Housing Production Trust Fund. 
 
For more information to help recognize centenarians in the District, DC residents can contact Darlene Nowlin, Community Relations Specialist, DC Office of Aging, at (202) 727-8634 or [email protected].
