The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners on May 9 proclaimed the month of May as Older Americans Month in Citrus County.

Older Americans richly contribute to our community. What it means “to age” has changed – for the better. Citrus County is committed to supporting older adults as they take charge of their health, explore new opportunities and activities, and focus on independence.

The Board of County Commissioners recognizes the month of May as Older Americans Month in Citrus County, and urges all citizens to take time this month to celebrate older adults and the people who serve and support them.
