May Is Older American’s Month

May is Older American’s Month (OAM), a time to celebrate the contributions of older adults to the nation. The 2018 OAM theme is “Engage At Every Age” which emphasizes that you are never too old (or too young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental and emotional well-being and celebrates the many ways older adults make a difference in our communities.

     Offering your wisdom and experience to the next generation, seeking the mentorship of someone with more life experience than you-those are just a few examples of what being engaged can mean.

     No matter where you are in life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in and Engage at Every Age! Come join us this month for our many special events and learn more about our programs and services.
