Each year, more and more older adults are making a positive impact in and around Floyd County. 

As volunteers, employees, employers, educators, mentors, advocates and more, they offer insight and experience that benefit the entire community.

That’s why Older Americans Month has been recognizing the contributions of this growing population for over 56 years.

Led by the Administration for Community Living each May, Older Americans Month provides resources to help older Americans stay healthy and independent and resources to help communities support and celebrate their diversity.

This year’s theme, “Connect, Create, Contribute,” encourages older adults and their communities to connect with friends, family and local services and resources, create through activities that promote learning, health and personal enrichment, contribute time, talent and life experiences to benefit others.

Floyd County Senior Citizens Centers will celebrate Older Americans Month by promoting ways that community members of all ages can take part in helping Floyd County thrive. 

Communities that support and recognize older adults are stronger. Join us in strengthening our community this May and throughout the year. 

If anyone would like to volunteer your time for Floyd County Senior Citizens, please contact Trudy Gabbard at, (606) 886-9193.

Robbie Williams,

Floyd County Judge-Executive
