Gwinnett celebrates Older Americans Month

Story Link:

In honor of Older Americans Month, Gwinnett County will celebrate older residents with free or low-cost events around the county throughout May.

Since 1963, May has been a time to celebrate older Americans, and every May, the Administration for Community Living leads the celebration. This is an opportunity to recognize our nation’s older residents. This year’s theme, “Age My Way,” focuses on how older adults can age in their communities, live independently for as long as possible and participate in ways they choose.

Explore all the services and activities offered to Gwinnett’s vibrant older residents, and see exciting events honoring Older Americans Month below:
