Montana DPHHS Wants to Hear From Centenarians
The Department of Public Health and Human Services is honoring Montana's centenarians at the Governor's Conference on Aging later this year. Public Information Officer Jon Ebelt said there are other minor changes to this year's conference.
"This fall in September, we are going to be having the Governor's Conference on Aging. It'll be the 48th annual conference. It's often been in the spring, this year it's been moved to the fall. The location has changed as well, it will be in Billings," Ebelt said. "One thing we're doing that's part of the conference is to honor Montana's Centenarians."
DPHHS is asking those able to attend or know of a family member that would enjoy being a guest to the conference, and will be 100 years old or older by the end of the year, to submit their name by August 1.
"What we are doing is looking at updating our list, we have a list currently of about 111 Centenarians. We will be updating that list and by the fall, and have good as a list to put together," Ebelt said. "But it will only be as good if people reach out to us."
The format for submissions can be found here. Ebelt said all Centenarians who submit information will receive a recognition proclamation from Gov. Steve Bullok as well as a free lunch during the event.
