Older Americans Month is an annual event dating back to 1963, when President 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. The national theme for the May 2014 Older Americans Month celebration is Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.
The federal Administration for Community Living provides logos, posters, and sample articles and proclamations for organizations that celebrate Older Americans Month. The Older Americans Month webpage provides theme-based ideas that will be posted in the near future. In the meantime, following are some ways you can get involved!
