It’s Older Americans Month, the theme is Age My Way – an opportunity to explore the many ways older adults can remain in and be involved in their communities. Established in 1963, Older Americans Month is to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country. Every President since Kennedy has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking that the entire nation pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities.  (
