In honor of Older Americans Month, the Advisory Council, Governing Board and dedicated staff of the Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington celebrate the enormous contributions of older Americans—borne of wisdom, experience, and the will to realize their dreams and speak their minds.

According to the Corporation of National and Community Service, in 2015 there were 11 million older adult volunteers contributing 1.9 billion hours of service valued at $45.4 billion.

We recognize your sacrifice and service to our country and your community, and with deep appreciation say “thank you.”
