In Honor of

Older Atlantans Month

 

Whereas,  Older Atlantans Month celebrates and honors the many contributions older adults make to our communities; and

 

Whereas,  Older Atlantans Month provides a special month for activities and celebrations which promote positive attitudes toward aging and recognize the active, healthy, and independent lives many older people lead; and

 

Whereas,              Older Atlantans Month encourages the senior members of our communities to enjoy their golden years and stay active.  It also promotes a positive attitude about an environment that is socially conducive to active aging; and

 

Whereas,               Atlanta has a growing 65 and over population who enjoy Atlanta’s natural attractions, leisure opportunities, and participate in the city’s growing marketplace; and

 

Whereas,              By capitalizing on their strengths, talents, knowledge, and abilities to mentor children, senior Atlantans contribute immeasurably to the city’s vitality.

 

Now, Therefore, We, the members of the Atlanta City Council, and on behalf of the citizens of

Atlanta, hereby proclaim May 2016 as Older Atlantans Month in the City of Atlanta.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, WE HAVE

HEREUNTO SET OUR HANDS AND

CAUSED THE SEAL OF THE CITY
