Council proclaims Older Americans Month
May 5, 2016
Older adults are an important part of the Portland community – and this month, we celebrate them!
Yesterday, Council presented a City proclamation honoring May as Older Americans Month in Portland.
Created by President John F. Kennedy, Older Americans Month became a nationwide celebration in 1963. This year’s theme is Blaze a Trail. It emphasizes ways older adults are reinventing themselves through new work and passions, engaging their communities, and blazing a trail of positive impact on the lives of people of all ages.
Nick is proud to serve as Council liaison to Elders in Action, a local nonprofit dedicated to creating a vibrant community of elders who are active in civic engagement.
