Celebrate Older Americans Month

Each year, during the month of May, the Administration for Community Living selects a theme to celebrate older adults and the incredible contributions they make to society each and every day. PLOWS Council on Aging is pleased to support this year’s theme of “Connect, Create, Contribute” and we hope you'll participate in the many events we have planned. Please visit Upcoming Events for a full list of our May activities.


Communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger! By engaging and supporting all community members, we recognize that older adults play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.

May 1-30 -- Ideas to Honor and Celebrate

  • CONNECT: Consider reaching out to an older adult in your community (or if you identify as an older adult, consider reaching out to a friend, family member or neighbor) to share your time, talents, skills, hobbies, even life experiences.

  • CREATE: Identify ways you can create new friendships, new support systems or a new project or activity that celebrates older adults. 


  • CONTRIBUTE: Give us a call! It is through the generosity of community members that PLOWS Council on Aging is able to provide critical services to help individuals maintain their independence in their community for as long as possible.
