May Is Older Americans Month

from Librarians’ Internet Index: New This Week, New and newly-discovered Web sites for librarians and everyone else, updated every Thursday morning. See more resources on our site, http://lii.org/

Background and suggestions for celebrating Older Americans Month (originally Senior Citizens Month when it was established in 1963), “a time to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country.” Features history, a list of past themes, and materials and downloads (from 2003 to the present). From the Administration on Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services….

The theme for Older Americans Month 2007 is “Older Americans: Making Choices for a Healthier Future.”

I think Bethel will celebrate by not building the assisted living home again, by not passing reduced cab fares for elders, by rooting for a 20% sales tax increase for a municipal swimming pool, and mostly by not taking time out to visit the “inmates” as they call themselves “back there”, at the senior center.

I guess the AOA logo is appropriate, then, head ’em off into the sunset.
