LINDEN — Linden residents 50 years of age or older may register for a Senior Citizen Identification Card the first Tuesday of every month at the John T. Gregorio Recreation Center, 330 Helen Street. Due to Election Day on Nov. 2, all Senior Citizen Identification Cards will be given out on Nov. 9 between 9 a.m. and noon.
Senior citizens must bring proof of age, proof of Linden residency and their Social Security card. The I.D. cards are necessary for identification on the city-operated senior citizen buses and in local stores participating in the Merchant Discount Program.
The I.D. Card Program, which has been in existence since 1975, is sponsored by the Department of Recreation and Community Services and conducted for Linden senior citizens. To date, nearly 2,000 identification cards has been issued to the senior citizens of Linden.
