The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on May 14, 2019 proclaiming the month of May 2019 as Older American Month in Citrus County.
Citrus County includes a growing number of older Americans who enrich our community through their
diverse life experiences. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners is committed to strengthening our community by connecting with and supporting older adults, their families, and caregivers and acknowledging their many valuable contributions to society.
The BOCC recognizes the importance of bringing together all generations and engaging in activities that promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being for the benefit of all. The BOCC can enhance the lives of older Americans in our community by:
• Promoting home- and community-based services that support independent living
• Involving older adults in community events and other activities
• Providing opportunities for older adults to work, volunteer, learn, lead, and mentor
The Board of County Commissioners of Citrus County does hereby proclaim May 2019 to be Older Americans Month in Citrus County, Florida. We urge every resident to take time during this month to recognize older adults and the people who serve them as essential and valuable members of our community.
