Filmmaker Evan Briggs had spent a long time thinking about aging in America, our relationship to the elderly and how dysfunctional it seemed. 

"What is it about our value system that makes it so these people don't really have a place here anymore after a certain age? Why are we OK with that?" she thought. "There is so much wisdom and life experience that our elderly members of society have that we're just not availing ourselves of, and that just seems like a huge loss."

When she learned there was a preschool in her town set inside a retirement home, where the residents and the children interacted on a daily basis, she knew she wanted tofilm a documentary there.

Briggs spent the 2012-13 school year filming three days a week at the Intergenerational Learning Center for children 6 weeks to 5 years old inside Providence Mount St. Vincent, a retirement home for about 400 adults in West Seattle. Her first feature-length film, "Present Perfect," explores "the very real experience of aging in America -- both growing up and growing old."

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.
