Never Too Old to Play
Posted on May 09 2012
May is Older Americans Month, where older Americans are celebrated for their contributions to our communities and society as a whole. This special month was established to encourage older Americans to continue to be active in their communities, as well as promote intergenerational activities, programs and socialization.
This year's theme is "Never Too Old to Play" and many of the program suggestions are centered around that theme. Since 1963, programs have been inspiring people of all walks of life to appreciate and work with the generation that came before them. Now, almost 50 years later, Older American's month is a tradition that lets older Americans know how much the work they do, and they themselves are appreciated.
The Older American Month webpage is presented by the U.S. Administration on Aging and offers great ideas, resources and tools to start programs and activities in your community. The goal of all programs within Older Americans Month is to have as many older Americans involved as possible and to encourage that they stay engaged, active and involved within their communities.
Visit the Older Americans Month website to learn more about this great outreach program and start impacting the seniors in your community today! This website will help you design programs that are beneficial for those in your community and also assist you on ways to promote your program. Remember to always encourage intergenerational programming and, most of all, have fun!
