KIPDA Is Celebrating Older Americans Month by Honoring Centenarians


KIPDA Will Host The Centenarian Celebration Day In Honor of Older Americans Month On May 20, 2011 From 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. At The Jewish Family And Career Services.

The Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA), through its Social Services Division is hosting a celebration honoring centenarians who reside in the KIPDA region on May 20, 2011. Appreciating the many virtues that local centenarians have to offer, KIPDA will pay tribute to those in attendance as well as those in the community that cannot attend.  Over 50 individuals over the age of one hundred years young have been identified in Louisville and the surrounding counties. We expect at least 20 of these fascinating centenarians to attend the event. The Masonic Homes Bell Choir will perform during the celebration, and awards of recognition will be distributed at Jewish Family and Career Service Center starting at 1:00 pm.


If you know someone who is 100 years old or will be on 100 years old this calendar year, please contact Jennifer Craig at (502) 266-5571 ext. 147 or at on or before May 16, 2011.

  1. How appropriate that KIPDA, one of the groups responsible for the design and implementation of the Ohio River Bridges Project, is celebrating centenarians. The thinking that led to the pathetic design downtown and the extravagant east end tunnel is reminiscent of outdated 1950s priorities and world-view. The really scary part is that this epic mistake will lock Louisville into 1950s style infrastructure on its image defining gateway for the next 100 years. This epic boondoggle will effectively make the greater Louisville area unmarketable to the world and lead to over 100 years of economic stagnation. Join us at Save Louisville on facebook and help us send a signal to the world that although our city and state’s leadership is 50 years behind the rest of the world on transportation policy, the majority of its citizens are not.
