Approximately 200 attended the event, enjoyed camaraderie, with friends, along with meeting new people and networking.  The grounds boasted a large tent that held some of the guests, while others enjoyed sitting in front of the fountains and ponds that are part of the landscape.  Staff from both Wayne and Paterson hospital campuses, along with other guests from every type of organization, volunteer, and many health care providers, mingled and relaxed, enjoying the wine that was provided by Valley Wine and Spirits, in Wayne.  Tables were set up under the tent for participants to enjoy wine and beer tasting.  Other sponsors for the event that provided food and drink were, Hunterdon Brewing Company, Bensi, Brownstone, Fri Guyz, Lina's Ristorante, Muscle Maker Grill, On The Border, Preakness Gourmet Deli, Taste of Tuscany, Il Crinale, DiCavino, Cobby's Florist, Tap House Grill, and Stop & Shop.  

There was plenty of spirits to taste, plenty to eat, and music was provided to enhance the summer evening out.  The event was a huge success in bringing the community together, generating funds toward a worthy cause, and enjoying a lovely evening out.

Monmouth County’s Office on Aging joined with Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Hazlet to host the Monmouth County’s Centenarian Celebration, honoring residents who are or will be aged 100 and over in 2015.

“It was great gathering to celebrate our Monmouth County centenarians,” said Freeholder John P. Curley. “It was truly astonishing to see how active many of them are and to hear them speak of their more than 100 years of living. This was a great celebration for them to share with their families and friends, and I look forward to it every year.”

The birthday party was held at the Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on May 11 and included a luncheon, music, gifts and a birthday cake.

“A few centenarians got up out of their seats to dance and others were dancing and singing in their seats,” said Curley. “Their energy and excitement filled the room. It was absolutely wonderful.”

There were 15 centenarians in attendance: Josephine Alessandro, 100; Eleanora Bell, 99; Rita D’Elia, 99; Katherine Elberty, 101; Hazel Feick, 100; Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, 102; Mario Gazzara, 101; Nicoletta Granato, 100; Adeline Lubkert, 99; Helen McKeown, 99; Rose Perrotta, 101; Brother Patrick Power, 102; Christina Savoca, 103; Ruth Schiff, 102; and Irene Starosolsky, will turn 104 on May 31.

“I am so honored that I was able to share this special day with these Monmouth County residents who have reached this phenomenal milestone,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso. “It was an incredible event and all of the centenarians had a great time.”

In May 2013, Regency broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Largest Gathering of Centenarians” at their Somerset location, Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center by gathering 31 centenarians in one location.



Somerset County Freeholder Deputy Director Patricia Walsh will attend the annual luncheon honoring Somerset County centenarians starting at noon on Wednesday, May 20, at the Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, at 380 DeMott Lane in Franklin Township.
