Celebration of the International Day of Older Persons

Beaverton City Council issued a proclamation recognizing the U.N. sanctioned “International Day of Older Persons”, honored annually on October 1. To celebrate this honor, Age Cafe will host a special virtual event on Friday, October 1 at 11:00 a.m. There will be a reading of the proclamation and Age Cafe participants will be encouraged to share a story, quote or memory of a special elder in their lives.

Age Cafe is a collaboration between the Beaverton Library, the Beaverton Council on Aging (BCOA), Washington County's Disability, Aging, and Veteran's Services (DAVS), and Viva Village to encourage and stimulate conversations about issues of importance to the participants.

International Day of Older Persons is a special day for older adults all over the world. The day is celebrated annually to recognize the contributions of older persons and to examine issues that affect their lives.
