UCHRA Celebrates Older American Month May 22
Tuesday, May 8, 2012 2:14 am
The Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Nutrition Program for Older Adults & Adults with Disabilities will join communities across the nation in the annual commemoration of Older Americans Month — a proud tradition that shows our nation’s commitment to celebrat-ing the contributions and achievements of older Americans.
Since 1963, The theme for Older Americans Month 2012 — Never Too Old to Play! — puts a spotlight on the important role older adults play in sharing their experience, wisdom, and understanding, and passing on that knowl-edge to other generations in a variety of significant ways. This year’s celebrations will recog-nize the value that older adults continue to bring to our communities through spirited participa-tion in social and faith groups, service organizations, and other activities.
The luncheon will be held at UCHRA’s Nutrition sites located in the Senior Centers. Luncheon tickets for guest under 60 years of age are $5.00. Reservations must be made 24 hours in advance. Join your neighbors not only to recognize what older citizens bring to our communities, but also to help them con-tinue playing a vital role in weaving a unique and lasting community fabric. We invite you to join in the fun!
