In 1988, President Ronald Regan established National Senior Citizens day as an official holiday, and many states participate by taking the day to celebrate inspirational seniors who have made a difference in their society.

President Reagan had said:

“For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and heartfelt salute.”

Take this day to:

  • Spend time with a senior citizen
  • Show your appreciation by helping a senior
  • Do volunteer work at an elder community
  • Whatever you do, say thank you!

If you are a senior, Happy National Senior Citizens Day and thank you for all you have done throughout your lifetime.  Have a beautiful day!
