Program History

On September 1, 2009 the Madison Common Council adopted a resolution honoring City of Madison Centenarians. Many states and municipalities across the country have programs to identify and honor their 100 year old citizens. Our centenarians hold the keys to longevity and quality of life. The Madison community continues to learn from their life experiences. The City Council acknowledges these contributions and adopted this program to recognize our centenarian citizens.

For more information, please contact the Common Council office at (608) 266-4071 or email council@cityofmadison.com.
