Mission: To enhance the daily lives of seniors in every way possible.
Our organization was founded in 2013 to celebrate seniors, of all ethnicities, who are 90 years of age and older. We do this by hosting various luncheons, banquets and celebrations throughout the year, feting the seniors with gifts and proclamations from businesses and local elected leaders as well as state and congressional leaders. Our seniors also received birthday wishes from President and Mrs. Barack Obama two years ago. We have hosted movies at the nursing homes, lectures at the colleges, and also entertainment at the Weinberg. Our seniors deserve these honors and more. We stand on their shoulders and are indebted to them. We thank them for their sacrifice and all that they have done to blaze the trail and to make our journey a bit easier.
We received our 501c3 status in May of 2014 and we started with 8 members and 14 honorees. Today (2018) this non profit organization consists of 62 honorees of which 7 are over 100 years old. To provide these seniors with equal support, and attention, we now have 17 members at large.
