Today is National Senior Citizen Day! Ronald Regan established this day 25 years ago as a time to recognize the contributions and achievements older adults have made throughout their lives. He stated “Many older people are embarking on second careers, giving younger Americans a fine example of responsibility, resourcefulness, competence and determination. And more than 4.5 million senior citizens are serving as volunteers in various programs and projects that benefit every sector of society. Wherever the need exists, older people are making their presence felt — for their own good and that of others.” So today, spend time with the senior citizens that you know, which may be your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, friends, and anyone who may not have family of their own on this day. Let them know that they are special, appreciated and much loved. The Legacy Center of Louisiana staff wants to honor and say thanks to all of our senior citizens!
