September is National Senior Center Month

National Senior Center Month is celebrated every year in September. Our national celebration theme is Senior Centers: Delivering Vital Connections. This year’s theme was chosen to highlight how senior centers deliver vital connections to support older adults aging well. Preventing social isolation is vital and a core senior center mission. While the delivery methods have changed during the pandemic, centers have succeeded in continuing to provide knowledge, programming, and resources. During senior center month showcase your center and its vital role in your community, promote a positive image of aging, and create interest among prospective new participants. Learn more HERE.
