Age Strong! Live Long!
May is Older Americans Month
History of Older Americans Month
When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living
Americans had reached their 65th birthdays. About a third of older Americans lived in
poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. Interest in older Americans
and their concerns was growing, however. In April of 1963, President John F. Kennedy’s
meeting with the National Council of Senior Citizens served as a prelude to designating
May as “Senior Citizens Month.”
Thanks to President Jimmy Carter’s 1980 designation, what was once called Senior
Citizens Month, is now called “Older Americans Month,” and has become a tradition.
Historically, Older Americans Month has been a time to acknowledge the contributions
of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our
country. Every President since JFK has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking
that the entire nation pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities. Older Americans Month is
celebrated across the country through ceremonies, events, fairs and other such activities.
East Valley Adult Resources strives to “Celebrate Older Americans” every day of the year. Offering
Opportunities to Connect, Contribute, and Care. Get involved with the many programs and services we offer.

nonprofit/charity, how much of your dollar is spent on the nonprofit’s/charity’s programs and

A Day in the Life of Home
Lynne Van Gould, Director Home Delivered Meals
The Home Delivered Meals program serves over 400
elderly, disabled, and homebound individuals daily. It is
our pleasure and honor to deliver a hot meal and a friendly
visit each day. Our clients mean a lot to us, and so do our
monitors and volunteers.
It is that time of year again where the temperatures
raise, and we are reminded that we live in the desert. On
those really hot days, think of your Home Delivered Meals
monitor, and what a GREAT job they do.
I would like to introduce you to another Home
Delivered Meals client. I met with Evelyn a couple of
months ago, but she asked me to wait to write about her as
she was going to have her 81st birthday in May, and this
would be great for her. Evelyn lives alone and has
been on Home Delivered Meals for over 1 year. She
says that her Monitor Ed always brings the meal hot
and with a smile. Evelyn even saves the meal for
dinner as the portions are that large.
Evelyn began crocheting early in life and does
a beautiful job. We have included a picture of a
stadium blanket that she created for her grandson.
Her grandson called her from Normal, Illinois and
said that he made the football team. Grandmother
was proud, as she should be. One month later, the
grandson called again and asked Evelyn if she could
make a stadium robe for his girlfriend, to keep her warm during the games…and of course
grandma said she would.
Getting to know a little more about our clients has been a blessing to me. To meet the
people we serve and to hear their stories, is a treasure. Thanks to those of you that have invited
me into your home and shared your stories with me.
