Happy Older Americans Month!

Did you know that the President of the United States proclaimed May 2024 as Older Americans month?

"This year's theme is "Powered by Connection.” The theme focuses on the profound impact that meaningful connections have on the well-being and health of older adults — a relationship underscored by the U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory on the Healing Effects of Social Connection and Community."

In the Bucksport Bay area, there are many opportunities for older adults to get involved.
