On Monday, April 30, at 11:30 am, 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 50 centenarians.
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 Mayor’s FY 2019 budget expands investments for seniors to ensure that Washington, DC is the best city in the world to age and live well, including through: $4.5 million to support the Safe at Home program, an additional $2 million investment in Transport DC and $11.4 million for a new senior holistic health and nutrition complex in Ward 8.
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].
