Older Americans Month: May 2017 

President John F. Kennedy first celebrated older Americans by designating May 1963 as Senior Citizens Month. Every president since has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May in support of older Americans. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter's proclamation changed the name to Older Americans Month.
