Older Americans Month 2021
Whereas, Magoffin County includes a growing number of older Americans who have built resilience and strength over their lives through successes and difficulties; and
Whereas, Magoffin County benefits when people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds are included and encouraged to share their successes and stories of resilience; and
Whereas, Magoffin County recognizes our need to nurture ourselves, reinforce our strength, and continue to thrive in times of both joy and difficulty; and
Whereas, Magoffin County can foster communities of strength by:
– creating opportunities to share stories and learn from each other;
– engaging older adults through education, recreation, and service; and
– encouraging people of all ages to celebrate connections and resilience.
Now, therefore, Matthew Wireman, Magoffin County Judge Executive, do hereby proclaim May 2021 to be Older Americans Month. I urge every resident to recognize older adults and the people who support them as essential contributors to the strength of our community.
