May is Older Americans Month (OAM). The theme for 2016 is “Blaze A Trail.” Older Americans Month originated in 1965 when policymakers realized there weren't enough social services for the aging population, as explained to me by Dana Paperman, Executive Director of the Seward Senior Center. Fraternal organizations were growing, but social services were not.

Baby Boomers are an active population. Retirees stay active by doing volunteer work and engaging in new opportunities. One of the goals at the SSC is to continue seeing inclusion in all circles.
