Governor recognizes New Mexicans on 100th birthdays

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Native New Mexicans who are celebrating their 100th birthdays can expect to receive a signed certification by Gov. Susana Martinez.

The Aging and Long-Term Services Department presented certificates to 29 New Mexicans last year who celebrated turning 100.

These Centenarian certificates are signed by the governor and are presented by the Aging and Long-Term Services Cabinet Secretary Gino Rinaldi.

“New Mexico’s centenarians are such an important part of our state. They have amazing stories to share, and have made so many contributions to this great state,” said Secretary Rinaldi. “I am always honored when I have the opportunity to visit with these folks and thank them for their contributions to our community.”

Send an email with the centenarian’s name, date of birth, and a point of contact to Myles Copeland to recognize those turning 100 years or older.
