National Older Americans Month was established in 1963; John F. Kennedy selected the month of May as “National Senior Citizens Month.” It wasn’t until 1980 that President Jimmy Carter designated it National Older American’s Month.
Older Americans Month was established to recognize the elderly for their dedication to the country, especially those who served in the armed forces. Older American’s Month is celebrated through out the country through fairs, events, and other fun activities.
