Office of Aging and Disability

July 25, 2022

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA —  In the coming weeks Chesterfield’s Office of Aging & Disability Services and the Board of Supervisors is planning to recognize and celebrate the county’s centenarians. In order to do that, the county is inviting those turning 100 in 2022 to participate in the festivities by filling out an application.

Centenarians have distinctive experiences and achievements that Chesterfield wants to recognize. There are two ways for these community treasures to participate in this year’s recognition: Through either mailed certificates and recognition coins and/or acknowledgement at the Board of Supervisors meeting in September. 

The 2022 application deadline for either recognition is Monday, Aug. 15, 2022, by 5 p.m.

Please be prepared to provide the following for the recognition application:

  • Up to three photographs (head shots preferred) of the centenarian that include both images of their younger and current selves.
  • Answers to the following questions (approximately 300 words or less; 1,500 character limit):
    • Your secret to longevity - Please tell us your thoughts on the secret to longevity.
    • Life achievement - Tell us about a life achievement that brings you joy, pride or accomplished a life goal.
    • Tell us a story about your family or childhood - Tell us about a defining moment or tradition that has made you who you are today.
    • Tell us about a professional or volunteer achievement - Tell us about how you have influenced your community.
    • Tell us about a current interest or hobby - Tell us about a current passion.
    • Additional biographical information - Anything else about you that you would like to share.
