Leonardtown, MD –St. Mary’s County is the proud home to a growing population of adults aged 50 and older. The county’s department of Aging & Human Services takes pride in offering activities specifically designed for those in that age group. To symbolize their commitment and dedication to seniors in the county, the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County have proclaimed September National Senior Center Month.

National Senior Center Month is an opportunity to spotlight the benefits of the county’s Senior Activity Centers and the value of their service in the community.

“The Department of Aging & Human Services provides a wide array of programs at three Senior Activity Centers, five days per week, to enhance the health, wellbeing and fitness of older adults;.” Said Commissioner Tom Jarboe (1stDistrict).

The theme for this year’s National Senior Center Month is “Senior Centers: Building Momentum.” The theme is particularly appropriate as ground was broken for the new Garvey Senior Activity Center in May of this year.

In proclaiming National Senior Center Month, the commissionersencourage all seniors, 50+ in the community to take advantage of the programs and activities offered at the county’s Senior Activity Centers every day.
