National Senior Citizens Day 2015
Today, on National Senior Citizens Day, it is imperative we acknowledge the contributions made by our older grandparents, parents, family, friends, and neighbors. However, it is important to realize that our seniors still have much to offer. As we move into the next few decades and beyond, this population segment will only grow in importance.
