Each May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads our nation’s celebration of Older Americans Month (OAM). ACL designed the 2017 OAM theme, Age Out Loud, to give aging a new voice—one that reflects what today’s older adults have to say.
This theme of Age Out Loud shines a light on many important trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. What it means to age has changed, and OAM 2017 is a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.
To celebrate Older Americans Month, the Liberty Silver Center is offering a variety of events to showcase Silver Center programs and services.
Here is a highlight of this months events:
May 5: Cinco De Mayo Potluck
May 9: Karaoke with Dick Hendrix
