May is Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month is a time to recognize the key role older adults play in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.

The 2019 theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to: Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation. Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment. Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others. Click here for more information and resources.
