In 2014, the Department presented certifi- cates to 29 New Mexicans. In many cases, Secretary Rinaldi hand delivered those certificates "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 al- ways honored when I have the opportunity to visit with these folks and thank them for their con- tributions to our community" In 2012, as part of the state's Centennial Celebration, Gover- nor Martinez began honoring New Mexicans celebrating at least 100 years'of life with a signed certificate. If you would like to recog- nize someone who is celebrating 100 years of life or more with a signed certificate, send the person's name and date of birth, along with an appropriate point of contact, to the Aging and Long- Term Services Department Re- quests should be submitted to the Department at least one month in advance of the recipient's birth- day.
