Montana’s Centenarians Search
The Governor's Advisory Council on Aging would like to recognize all Montanan’s who are, or will be 100 years of age or older by December 31st, 2021.
At the 2019 Governor’s Conference held in Billings September (2019), we recognized 141 centenarians. 17 of those centenarians attended the Centenarian Banquet. By recognizing the oldest of Montana’s elders and honoring them, we hope to raise the public’s awareness of our aging society.
Due to COVID-19 The 2020 Governor’s Conference on Aging has been postponed until September 2021. This will be a virtual conference offered statewide and is scheduled for September 14th. The Centenarian celebration is also postponed as a result, however 2021 certificates from the Governor’s office can still be requested and will be forwarded to the centenarian. Each community may consider doing a local celebration during the scheduled conference. So, stay tuned for more information.
