Connect, Create, Contribute
By MaryAnne Beatty
ALEXANDRIA, VA-Every May, the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The 2019 theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to:
• Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.
• Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
• Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.
Communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger! By engaging and supporting all community members, we recognize that older adults play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.
We are fortunate to live in an area where there are so many opportunities to connect, create, and contribute. Check out what Senior Services as to offer this month, as well as other organizations around town.
