May 2019, Older Americans Month:
Connect, Create, Contribute
Each year, older adults are making a positive impact in and around Woodstock. As volunteers, employees, employers, educators, mentors, advocates, and more, they offer insight and experience that benefit the entire community. That’s why Older Americans Month (OAM) has been recognizing the contributions of this growing population for 56 years.
Led by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) each May, OAM provides resources to help older Americans stay healthy and independent, and resources to help communities support and celebrate their diversity.
This year’s OAM theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to:
Connect with friends, family, and local services and resources.
Create through activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.
We here at The Thompson will celebrate OAM by promoting ways that community members of all ages can take part in helping our community thrive. We encourage you to:
Connect: Join us for Older American’s Lunch, participate in our summer Gen-2-Gen program, or join us for any of the social events or meals offered each month. Bring a friend or come make a new one!
Create: Register for our monthly art project with ArtisTree, sign-up for Tech Tutoring, Diabetes Management class or join our Book group.
Contribute: Become a Meals on Wheels driver, help serve lunch, or volunteer at one of the many volunteer opportunities in our community.
