21 Aug National Senior Citizens Day!
Hang on for a quick history lesson!
A number of years ago on August 14, 1935 US president Franklin Roosevelt signedthe Social Security Act which included a declared day for senior citizens. However, it wasn’t until 1988 Ronald Reagan, who was the US president at the time, declared August 21 to be National Senior Citizens Day.
There are a number of life lessons that our senior citizens have already and still need to teach us. Their wisdom and ability to see problems and to provide solutions can only come with wisdom.
There are several ways we can learn from our senior citizens and lend a helping hand at the same time. Below are listed a number of places in the community to assist our senior citizens. If you know of any senior citizens in your nearby community, give them a call and ask how they are doing. Perhaps, stop by, have a glass of tea with them, and give them an afternoon visit. We have more to learn from them than they have to learn from us!

Henry Ford described our aging population perfectly when he said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
