Presidential Proclamation--Older Americans Month
Older Americans are now living longer, healthier, and richer lives than ever
before. As the eldest of the baby boomers turn 65, our Nation can look
forward to the contributions of a new generation of American seniors.
Each year, we set aside the month of May to honor older Americans, celebrate
their role in steering the course of our history, and recognize their valuable
insights and wisdom....to read the full proclamation please click here.
