At their April 22 meeting, Kitsap County Commissioners Ed Wolfe, Charlotte Garrido, and Rob Gelder signed a proclamation declaring May as Older Americans Month in Kitsap County.

For over 50 years, the Administration for Community Living has led our nation's observance of Older Americans Month. The 2019 theme, "Connect, Create, Contribute," encourages older adults and their communities to:

  • Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.
  • Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
  • Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

To celebrate Older Americans Month, Kitsap County's Division of Aging and Long-Term Care is co-sponsoring the following free events with local community groups:

May 8, 11 to 11:45 a.m.
