MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - The Middlesex County Office of Aging and Disabled Services will once again hold Birthday Bashes for senior citizens age 90 and over as part of its National Older Americans Month celebration.

Due to the popularity of these events, four lunchtime parties will be held this year. Residents will be asked to attend one of the events based on their residency.  

The first will be held May 2 at the Edison Senior Center. The second will be held May 10 at the Piscataway Senior Center. The third will be held May 15 at the Old Bridge Senior Center. The fourth will be held May 25 at the South Brunswick Senior Center. All events begin at 11 a.m.

“All County residents who are 90 and older are invited so we can celebrate their lives and accomplishments,” said Freeholder Blanquita B. Valenti, chair of the County’s Community Services Committee. 

“These events are always filled with fun,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “It is certainly a wonderful way for our celebrants to spend an afternoon.”

Traditionally, about 150 seniors age 90 and over attend each lunch. Each celebrant is invited with one guest. A few spots remain for this year, but registration is required.

“We are happy we can give these special seniors a chance to enjoy the “limelight” with the recognition luncheon and entertainment,” said Gerry Mackenzie, Community Services Department Head. 



The Edison luncheon (scheduled for May 2) will honor residents from Edison, Metuchen, Perth Amboy, South Amboy and Woodbridge.

The Piscataway luncheon (scheduled for May 10) will honor residents of Carteret, Dunellen, Highland Park, Middlesex, New Brunswick, Piscataway and South Plainfield.
 

The Old Bridge luncheon (scheduled for May 15) will honor residents from Helmetta, Old Bridge, Monroe Twp, Sayreville, South River and Spotswood.

The South Brunswick luncheon (scheduled for May 25) will honor residents of Cranbury, East Brunswick, Jamesburg, Milltown, North Brunswick, South Brunswick and Plainsboro.
 

Seniors wishing to attend who need transportation to the event should check with their local senior centers. 

For information or to register for an event, call 732-745-4267.
