Honoring the Senior Citizens of America

Take for example on the 21st of August of this year; Utah Rooter will join the rest of the country in honoring seniors on Senior Citizen’s Day. It is a day where seniors receive the recognition that they deserve.

There are various activities and events centered on giving honor to our wiser citizens. These events are meant to raise the attention of giving support to all senior citizens. There are activities in which organizers utilize the power of the internet to spread the word, while some do it by organizing small community services and events. Even family and friends of senior citizens join in the occasion by making the extra effort to visit their loved ones.

The history of National Senior Citizens Day started on August 14, 1935. The original date is the reason why some organizations celebrate the event on the 14th instead of the 21st. August 14 was the day that US President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Then, in 1988, President Ronald Reagan publicly declared the 21st of August as National Senior Citizens Day. This day was declared to give honor and acknowledgment to all American senior citizens and all of their contributions to society. Aside from their contributions, this day was meant to promote awareness that the elderly have needs regarding health and economics, too.
