Older Americans Month 2016 - "Blaze a Trail"

Older adults are a vital part of our society. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. The theme of the 2016 celebration is "Blaze a Trail," to raise awareness about important issues facing older adults and highlighting the ways that older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities.
