Older Americans Month 2016: “Blaze a Trail”


May is Older Americans Month, which is an annual event dating back to 1963.  Originally, Present John F. Kennedy designated May as Senior Citizens Month.  It was later renamed Older Americans Month, honoring older Americans and celebrating their contributions to our communities and our nation.

Older adults are a growing and increasingly vital part of our country. The contributions they make to our communities are varied, deeply rooted, and include influential roles in the nation’s economy, politics, and the arts. From 78-year-old California Governor Jerry Brown, to 84-year-old actress Betty White, to 83-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who took her seat as a Supreme Court Justice at age 60, older adults are blazing trails in all aspects of American life.

In celebration of Older Americans Act Month and the reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, AAA4 is hosting an Open House on May 13th from 1 to 4.  Please join us in celebrating the contributions of older adults and come see our wonderful new location!
