Over 1,000 seniors rallied on the lawn of the State Capitol for the 10th annual Older Michiganians Day on May 17, 2017. The Theme for the event was Age Out Loud!
This advocacy event is a day for older adults and professionals from the statewide aging network to celebrate our growing senior population and consider policies and budget decisions that are senior friendly. Programming included the presentation of a Senior of the Year award as well as remarks from state policy makers.
State Senators and Representatives were invited to join their constituents on the lawn for lunch. Thanks to House Speaker Tom Leonard and House Minority Leader Sam Singh for their remarks to the group, and for Representatives Barrett and and Roberts for joining us as well.
For more information about the issue platform or for other details about the event, please contact Tammy Lemmer from the Tri-County Office on Aging at 517-887-1382 or visit www.oldermichiganiansday.com.
