Celebrating more than six decades of serving as a community leader in older adult care, SAGE Eldercare is having a banner year -- literally -- as evidenced by the debut of a sign heralding its 65-year history spanning Springfield Avenue at the corner of Beechwood Road.

Further festive plans include a 'Birthday Bash' at Canoe Brook Country Club on November 7, an event that will pay homage to SAGE's Founders and the nonprofit’s story, which began in 1954 when a group of civil-minded volunteers saw a need in the community to help older adults and took action to make it happen. The celebration will also honor SAGE corporate partner PNC Bank and longtime volunteer Kitty Hartman of New Providence. SAGE volunteer John Mell and his wife Anne of Summit will be guest speakers.

Tickets for the 'Bash' are available by calling 908-598-5504 or contacting jfinsen@sageeldercare.org.
