Casey’s Spotlight: Senate Approves Casey Resolution Celebrating Older Americans Month


.

Dear Friends:

.

Today’s older Americans fought our wars, worked in our factories, taught our kids, and built the great American middle class. 

.

In celebration of that service, I am pleased that today the U.S. Senate unanimously approved S. Res. 172 to designate May 2017 as “Older Americans Month.” This resolution, which I authored with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), recognizes older individuals as valuable leaders in strengthening communities across the United States through their wisdom and experience.

.

As we continue to celebrate Older Americans Month, please share your stories of older Americans who have given back to their community and Nation by emailing casey_seniorspotlight@aging.senate.gov.

  

Sincerely,

  

Bob Casey, Jr.
