When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday.  About a third of older Americans lived in poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs.  Interest in Older Americans and their concerns was growing.  A meeting in April 1963 between President John F. Kennedy and members of the National Council of Senior Citizens led to designating May as “Senior Citizens Month,” the prelude to “Older Americans Month.” Historically, Older Americans Month has been a time to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country.  Every President since Kennedy has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking that the entire nation pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities.  Older American’s Month is celebrated across the country through ceremonies, events, fairs, and other such activities. Information from oam.acl.gov website Express Yourself-take an art class, write that novel, share stories with grandkids…whatever suits you. Get Engaged-come to the senior center, connect with others, explore new things, take an exercise class and strive for wellness.
The Center will be closed on Monday, the 29th of May in Observance of Memorial Day.
