OMG! OMG! Why didn’t you tell me that May was Older Americans Month?
This month’s theme is “Older Americans: Connecting the Community”. Highlighting the strong influence of baby boomers, Obama’s proclamation describes the valuable insights and wisdom that boomers and seniors are bestowing on their communities every day:
“Today, millions of our Nation’s seniors are making a significant difference in society, strengthening our communities through their service. Older Americans support the arts and serve meals at soup kitchens. They mentor our children and stock the shelves at food pantries and libraries. Programs supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Administration on Aging are working to connect men and women to community service, benefiting Americans of all ages. Interested individuals can visit www.SeniorCorps.gov for more information and local volunteer opportunities.”
It’s especially important to note how fast Boomers are carving out their own niche in technology. We are always thrilled to we see more and more websites, blogs and companies run by boomers for boomers.
The Boomington Post is always looking for new friends, so let us know if you have a good Baby Boomer site to recommend in the comments section, ok?
