"For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute," President Ronald Reagan said when he signed the proclamation in 1988. "We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older."With that in mind, let's see what's going on around town today.
