This year, the national theme is “Connect, Create, Contribute.” This year’s theme encourages older adults and their communities to: Connect with friends, family, and local services and resources; Create through activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment; and Contribute time, talent and life experience to benefit others.

This year also marks the 54th anniversary of the Older Americans Act of 1965, under which many programs were created to serve older adults in the United States.
