Celebrating older Americans

May 6, 2015

Older adults are an important part of the Portland community -- and this month, we celebrate them!

This morning, Nick was pleased to read a Proclamation declaring May as Older Americans Month in Portland. Created by President John F. Kennedy, Older Americans Month became a nationwide celebration in 1963. This year’s theme is Get into the Act. It focuses on older adults taking charge of their health and being active members of their communities.    

Nick is proud to serve as Council liaison to Elders in Action, a local nonprofit dedicated to creating a vibrant community of elders who are active in civic engagement. 

The City partners with Elders in Action, Multnomah County, and other local nonprofits to enhance the lives of older adults in our region.  

Learn about upcoming opportunities for older adults on the Elders in Action website.
