Older New Yorkers' Day 2019

Each May as part of national Older Americans Month, NYSOFA celebrates older adults at an Older New Yorkers’ Day event in Albany. Many older New Yorkers, chosen by their local offices for the aging, are recognized for their outstanding contributions at this annual event.

Older New Yorkers’ Day in New York State is traditionally held during the second week of May. A Governor’s proclamation commemorates the date. Throughout the history of the event in New York, State Office for the Aging staff have been responsible for the planning and management of the event. The Governor’s Office and NYSOFA collaborate with the respective aging committees in the Senate and Assembly to coordinate their Older New Yorkers’ Day awards, and plan the day’s events.
