Celebration of Life is funded by private donations from multiple businesses and organizations from around the Unifour. Established in 1963, Older Americans Month (OAM) is celebrated every May. Led by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), OAM is a time for us to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of older Americans, highlight important trends, and strengthen our commitment to honoring our older citizens.[News release courtesy of Paige Counts, Caldwell County Public Information Officer]
