Every May for 55 years, Older Americans Month (OAM) has been observed to recognize older Americans and their contributions to our communities. Led by the Administration for Community Living’s Administration on Aging, OAM offers opportunity to hear from, support, and celebrate our nation’s elders. This year’s theme of Engage at Every Age emphasizes the importance of being active and involved. You are never too old (or too young) to participate in activities that can enrich physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Each Council/Coalition on Aging in our nine-county region selects and celebrates one Outstanding Senior Citizen to honor during OAM events held throughout May. Click here to see the list of OAM activities and contacts in our nine counties. Many events require tickets or advance registration.
