Celebrate Elderhood

Celebrate Elderhood

Celebrate Elderhood is an initiative that brings attention to the issues of aging, challenging misconceptions and showcasing how this stage of the lifecycle enriches individuals, families and the community. The goal is to set a community standard where elders and the people and organizations that make up the network of service providers are valued, respected, and supported. With older adults being the fastest growing segment of our county and country, having a community that is good to grow up and grow old in should be important to everyone.

Celebrate Elderhood is coordinated by the Area Agency on Aging IIIA and its Older Adult Services Advisory Council, with the assistance of community volunteers. Kalamazoo County Advocates for Senior Issues, a non-profit organization, is the fiduciary.

The Centenarian Luncheon is an annual event held to honor Kalamazoo citizens 100 years old or older. For more information email or call 269-373-5147.
