How are you going to honor Seniors today?
August 21st is for oldies, but goodies.
It honors our elderly population. On this day, we are encouraged to recognize and show appreciation for the value & contribution of elderly people to home, family and society. On August 19, 1988, President Ronald Reagan issued Proclamation 5847 creating National Senior Citizens Day to be August 21.
o - Spend some time with senior citizens (Cheerfully let them ramble on about 'the good old days.')
o - Show your appreciation for seniors (Take them out to lunch, dinner or take a meal to them. Offer to clean their house, make repairs, run errands, etc.)
o - Do volunteer work in support of the elderly (Some residents in assisted living homes have no visitors, go chat w/them. Consider volunteering for Meals-On-Wheels.)
If you are a senior citizen, enjoy your day any way you desire. It might be nice to call/visit your elder relatives/friends, too. Take advantage of senior citizens specials and discounts. :-D
