May is Older Americans Month plus bonus Senior content
The Administration on Aging (AoA) is promoting Older Americans Month (OAM) in May.
Help spread the word! When you tweet, please use the hashtag #OAM2012. This year the theme of OAM is “Never Too Old to Play”, which encourages older Americans to stay active and involved in their communities.
Also, AoA has developed a website in honor of Older Americans Month at www.OlderAmericansMonth.org It offers resources for celebrating Older Americans Month, including an activities toolkit, Day of Play promotion flyers and OAM posters. Also, people can share photos and videos of events that they organized for OAM on the OAM website.
