NATIONAL SENIOR CITIZENS DAY
Each year on August 21, there are various events and activities held across the United States in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day.
This day was created as a day to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements. Their valuable contributions to our communities create better places to live.

HOW TO OBSERVE
