New York State Office for the Aging Will Celebrate Senior Day 2016 on May 10

Each May as part of national Older Americans Month, NYSOFA celebrates older New Yorkers at a Senior Day event in Albany. Many older New Yorkers, chosen by their county Offices for the Aging, are honored and recognized for their outstanding contributions at the annual event.

Senior Day in New York is traditionally held during the first or second week of May. A Governor's proclamation designates the date and theme for the day. Throughout the history of the event in New York State, the 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 Senior Day awards, and plan the day's events.
