May is Older Americans Month and will be celebrated throughout the nation. There will be a special celebration at the County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, May 7 at 9:30 a.m. The reception is in appreciation of the work of the Seniors’ Agenda and its partners for making Santa Clara an age-friendly county. To RSVP please contact Diana Miller @408/755-7695 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Older Americans Month, go to act.gov/oam.
In 1999, Congress also designated May as Military Appreciation Month; be sure to thank the veterans in our chapter for their service to America and let Angie Jaggars know if you have friends or relatives on active duty overseas. Check local websites, TV, radio and newspapers for special veteran-related activities.
