Second Annual 'Salute to Seniors Day' to Be Celebrated Saturday, September 27 PDF Print Email

Written by Julie Dalton, Executive Director, Gramatan Village

Sep. 24, 2014: Bronxville will celebrate its second annual Salute to Seniors Day on Saturday, September 27--the culmination of Active Aging Week (September 21 to September 27), a week filled with events specifically designed for seniors.

The daylong celebration of our older neighbors is cosponsored by the Senior Citizens Council, Gramatan Village, and Bronxville Senior Citizens, with support from NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital and the Bronxville Rotary Club.

The festivities will begin at 10:00 am on Saturday on the front lawn of the Bronxville High School. Community organizations will have informational tables on Pondfield Road and many local businesses and restaurants will be offering "silver" discounts and specials for seniors. In the afternoon, the Bronxville Library will welcome all to a performance by Elvis tribute artist Dino Bravo.

The International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), the initiator of Active Aging Week, is dedicated to changing society's perception of aging. ICAA's mission is to improve the quality of life for older adults in our communities within the seven dimensions of wellness (emotional, vocational, physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, and environmental).

Since 2001, ICAA has been a forum for research to document how people can significantly improve the quality of their later years by staying active and fully engaged in life. Active Aging Week is an initiative designed to raise awareness and is now celebrated each year during the last week of September in the United States and Canada. Active Aging Week activities are free and emphasize fun, camaraderie, and education. This year Active Aging Week's theme is "Let the Adventure Begin!"

During Active Aging Week, older adults are encouraged to stay physically and intellectually active. Even ten minutes of physical activity three times a day/five days a week can offer long-term health benefits. Taking a course, learning a new activity, and joining with others for social interactions are all good habits to develop as we age. Staying connected to the community in meaningful ways prevents social isolation.

All are welcome to join this special day for our older friends and neighbors.
