SOMERVILLE, NJ - Living long enough to be called a centenarian is worthy of praise, envy, respect - and at the very least, a free lunch.

The county Office on Aging and Disability Services, in collaboration with the Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is looking to identify residents who will be age 100 or older in 2016.

“We are asking residents to help us honor the centenarians in our community,” said Freeholder Brian D. Levine, human services liaison. “These resilient individuals, who have touched the lives of so many people over the years, are wonderful role models for future generations.”
