More 'Big Wheels' Deliver Meals for Older Americans Month
Meals on Wheels had special guest hoppers! Representative Brandt Iden rode along with volunteer Jack Cook on a Kalamazoo route, while Representative David Maturen joined us for a Battle Creek route with RSVP volunteer Cathy Davids to celebrate Older Americans Month. Thanks Representative Iden and Representative Maturen for delivering meals and a friendly smile to so many seniors!
Senior Corps Week is a time to salute volunteers from Foster Grandparent Program, RSVP, and Senior Companion Program, recognize community sponsors and partners, and communicate the impact of and on the lives of those who serve. Senior Services is proud to sponsor all three Senior Corps programs. Congratulations!
May is Older Americans Month
When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday. About a third of older Americans lived in poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. Interest in older Americans and their concerns was growing. A meeting in April 1963 between President John F. Kennedy and members of the National Council of Senior Citizens led to designating May as “Senior Citizens Month,” the prelude to “Older Americans Month.”
Historically, Older Americans Month has been a time to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country. Think of some way this month to pay tribute to an older person, whether it’s a phone call, a note of appreciation, or a donation to Senior Services in honor of a special friend. Celebrate Older American’s Month by letting someone know they are truly a treasure.
