|Active Aging Week September 23 to 30; See Activities|
By Juliet Zygmunt, Chair, Active Aging Week Committee
Active Aging Week will kick off on Sunday, September 23, at 2:00 pm in the Yeager Room at the Bronxville Public Library with the Speeder 55+ Art Show and the Mary B. Turino Art Lecture, which is made possible by a generous gift from her family foundation in her memory and in recognition of her love for art and for her dedication, support, and founding of the Senior Citizens Council and the Bronxville and Tuckahoe senior centers. The guest speaker will be Charles T. Little, curator emeritus of medieval art and the Cloisters at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. A reception immediately follows the lecture.
The Speeder 55+ Art Show showcases the work of local artists over the age of 55 and runs from September 23 through October 27. The show is sponsored by the Bronxville Adult School, the Bronxville Public Library, Bronxville Senior Citizens, and Gramatan Village.
The 16th Annual Active Aging Week is an event promoted by the International Council on Active Aging. The weeklong campaign calls attention to and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today. It showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.
This year's theme, inspiring wellness, emphasizes engaging as fully as possible in all areas of life, regardless of health.
Along with organizations worldwide, the Senior Citizens Council, the Bronxville Senior Citizens, the Tuckahoe Senior Citizens, and Gramatan Village are supporting the initiative as host organizations embracing the inspiring wellness theme by offering activities to the public that promote healthy lifestyles.
