May is Celebrating Seniors Month. May 16-23, the villages of Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park will be celebrating seniors in our community for the third year. Jim Flanagan of River Forest is the "Founding Father" of Celebrating Seniors Week. The purpose is to change the perception of aging, recognize the significant contributions older adults make to our community and raise money to help seniors in our community in need.

Sixty people over the age of 60 are nominated and celebrated on a special evening. There are numerous educational and fun activities planned throughout this week. Look for Senior Resource Guide Books, which will be distributed throughout the three villages the week of May 5.

I was one of the 60 over 60 honorees the first year, to my surprise, and enjoyed and took full advantage of all that was offered. I plan on doing the same this year. Please join me at the events.

I wish to thank Jim Flanagan for all his volunteer work in this very worthwhile endeavor!
