"Establishing Older Alaskans' Day. "


"Older Alaskans' Day will be an appropriate addition to Senior Week celebrations. I ask for your support of this legislation."
- Sen. Stevens

 

Alaska's seniors are one of the nation's fastest growing senior populations, comprising 20% of the state's population. Each year, Alaskans 60 years of age and older contribute millions of dollars to Alaska's economy. Through their involvement with various organizations, service clubs and the like, they also provide thousands of hours of volunteer work through various organizations for the betterment of their communities and state. Given the numerous and important contributions Alaska's Seniors make to our state, it is a fitting honor that a day be set aside to recognize these accomplishments.

If passed into law, SB 224 will designate the second Wednesday of September as "Older Alaskans' Day". Older Alaskans' Day will be an appropriate addition to National Senior Center Week celebrations, which fall during the second full week of September starting in 2007, and will be close to Grandparents' Day. I ask for your support of this legislation.
