May is Older Americans Month, designated by the U.S. Administration on Aging to pay tribute to older persons in our communities. This year’s Older Americans Month theme is “Older Americans: Connecting the Community.” This theme recognizes the diverse role of today’s older American in enriching and strengthening our community. This is a chance for each and every one of us to show our appreciation and support for all our seniors do for our community. Their shared histories, diverse experiences and wealth of knowledge have made our culture, economy and local character what they are today. -Janet Taylor, Auburnpub.com
