Dear Friends,

May is Older Americans Month.  The theme this year is Age Out Loud.

Getting older doesn't mean what it used to. For many Americans, it is a phase of life where interests, goals, and dreams can get a new or second start. Today, aging is about eliminating outdated perceptions and living the way that suits you best. This year's theme, "Age Out Loud," emphasizes the ways older adults are living their lives with boldness, confidence, and passion while serving as an inspiration to people of all ages.  

Gramatan Village  embodies the principles of Older Americans Month all year long. Our members stay engaged, strive for wellness and explore new things!
