A month long celebration of Older Adults in our communities.
Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month.
This year's theme is "Make Your Mark".
This theme was selected to encourage and celebrate countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Their time, experience, and talents benefit family, peers, and neighbors every day. Communities, organizations, and individuals of all ages are also making their marks. This year’s theme highlights the difference everyone can make – in the lives of older adults, in support of caregivers, and to strengthen communities.
Visit the website for artwork, activity ideas, and other materials to help you observe Older Americans Month. CTFOA is working with the Chesapeake 55+ Steering Committee to put together a plan to spread awareness. Stay tuned for more info.
