In 1963, President John F. Kennedy designated May as “Senior Citizens Month”, which later was renamed as “Older Americans Month”. May is the month to celebrate older Americans for their contributions to their community and nation. Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park, Illinois have taken it up a notch with “Celebrating Seniors. This year, the week of May 14th – May 21st , days start early and end late. They are filled with entertainment, food, hobbies, educational seminars, resources and more provided by the community and volunteers. Another unique event is the “Sixty over Sixty Club”. Sixty senior citizens over 60 years young are chosen for being extraordinary while making a difference. With centenarians being the fastest growing segment of our population, it is fair to say, the “One Hundred over One Hundred Club” may not be that far away, which is a beautiful thing!
