Division of Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans’ Services to celebrate 50 years of service in Hunterdon County

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Hunterdon County Division of Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans’ Services (DSDVS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and has planned a fun-filled afternoon at South County Park on Thursday, September 22 starting at 11:00 a.m., according to Commissioner Jeff Kuhl.

Commissioner Jeff Kuhl, the Board’s Human Services liaison, said, “Celebrating the Senior Center and all of the programs available for county residents is important because they allow seniors to remain independent and mobile. Classes for healthy movement, nutrition, technology, and many others, keep the senior community engaged. This valuable resource is often a lifeline for the senior community.”

Programs such as the LINK paratransit system, Meals On Wheels, Medicare Information sessions, Art Shows, Italian and guitar lessons, tap classes and Mr. Fix It, are a significant source of support to the Senior Community.

Laine Nauman, Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans’ Services Division Head, said, “The Senior Center has been providing programs to assist Seniors, Veterans and underserved individuals in the community for fifty years, something Hunterdon County should be proud of. Often, we are the senior resident’s sole connection for activity, information and community resources.”

The Division of Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans’ Services 50th Anniversary Celebration will be held at the South County Fairgrounds, in the Grange Building, on Thursday, September 22, starting at 11:00 a.m., with lunch
served at 12:00 p.m.

Musical act, The Belle Tones, will perform and Doctor D Entertainment will play classic tunes throughout the event.

“The County Division of Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans Services staff does a remarkable job in providing services for thousands of Hunterdon County Seniors. Both the Division and Department of Human Services staff are to be commended for ensuring the continuation of these important programs and for putting together a commemorative event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary,” Kuhl said.

At this time, there is a waitlist for the event. For more information, interested seniors can call 908-788-1361 or visit the Division of Seniors, Disabilities and Veterans’ Services, located at 4 Gauntt Place, Building #1, in Flemington.
