First Selectman, Melissa Mack, will proclaim May 2019 to be Older Americans Month during the first Board of Selectmen meeting in May!

Each year, more and more older adults are making a positive impact in and around Suffield. As volunteers, employees, employers, educators, mentors, advocates and more, you offer insight and experience that benefit our entire community. That’s why Older Americans Month has been recognizing the contributions of this growing population for 56 years.

Led by the Administration for Community Living each May, Older Americans Month provides resources to help older Americans stay healthy and independent, and resources to help communities support and celebrate their diversity.

This year’s Older Americans Month theme is Connect, Create, Contribute encouraging older adults and communities to:

Connect with friends, family, and local services and resources.

Create through activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

Communities that support and recognize older adults are stronger! Join us in strengthening our community—this May and throughout the year. Visit the official Older Americans website: for ideas and inspiration.
