Older Americans Month encourages older adults to connect with friends, family, and services that support participation. The 2019 theme: Connect, Create, Contribute motivates older adults to create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

Commissioners Court unanimously approved a proclamation recognizing that communities who encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger.

One example of a Hidalgo County elder community agency is Amigos Del Valle, Inc., which includes a growing number of older adults who stay active in the community by participating in physical and mental exercises, and programs offered by the agency.

"Thank you for your continued support with CDBG funds," said Executive Director Alex Guerra. "I would like to thank the seniors for being here with us today; without them, a lot of packaging of home delivery meals wouldn't get done."
