Celebrate Older Americans Month
May Activities at the Madison Senior Center
Older Americans Month is celebrated each year during the month of May. Named in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy as "Senior Citizens Month," Jimmy Carter changed the designation to its current name in 1980. Presidents and communities have issued proclamations for the past 49 years, honoring older adults and their many contributions to their communities. The 2012 slogan for the celebration is "never too old to play!"
