WHITING – The Organization of Residents Associations of New Jersey (ORANJ) fall plenary meeting was held on Oct. 17 at Crestwood Manor, a Springpoint Senior Living community, with special guest New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Sheila Y. Oliver.

ORANJ was established in 1991 to support, empower and better the lives of our senior citizens, advocating for the rights of those 10,000 residents who reside in NJ continuing care retirement communities.

Lieutenant Governor Sheila Y. Oliver, who also serves as commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, was the special guest speaker at the event. Terry Hughes, president of Crestwood Manor Residents Association, and Anne M. Hay, executive director of Crestwood Manor, welcomed members and attendees.

Residents Associations in all of the 26 continuing care retirement communities certified for occupancy in NJ are members of ORANJ. They meet each spring and fall.
