It is back to school time! It is getting darker earlier, the yellow buses are zooming by and football season is upon us. Yep, school is in session.

Since 1988, the United States has recognized National Senior Citizens Day on August 21. President Ronald Regan declared this day a national holiday to show senior citizens our appreciation and support and acknowledge their accomplishments. Today, senior citizens are more active than ever in their communities and the workforce. They still contribute heavily to our society, and for what they have achieved and continue to achieve, they deserve our thanks. At Presbyterian Senior Living, we are blessed to be able to serve thousands of seniors, all of whom bring their own unique set of knowledge, stories, talents, and abilities.
