May is the month to celebrate older AmericansMay 2, 2013
To the editor:
Every year since 1963, May has been the month to appreciate and celebrate the vitality and aspirations of older adults and their contributions and achievements. It is a proud tradition that shows our nation’s commitment to honor the value that elders continue to contribute to our communities.
This year’s Older Americans Month theme —“Unleash the Power of Age!”— emphasizes the important role of older adults. This May, communities across the nation will recognize older Americans as productive, active and influential members of society.
Older Americans Month celebrations will acknowledge the value that older adults continue to bring to our communities by making an effort to applaud recent achievements of local elders and inviting them to share the activities they do to unleash the power of age.
Generations is celebrating Older Americans Month by bringing back its Aging Well Retreat on May 9 at Green Activities Center on the Vincennes University campus. This event will offer information and inspiration for adults to improve their physical, mental and social fitness.
While Generations provides services, support and resources to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month is a great opportunity to show special appreciation! We will continue to provide opportunities for elders to come together and share their experiences with one another, as well as with individuals of other generations.
Generations Executive Director
