City of Roseville notes May as Older Americans Month with proclamation

Whereas: Roseville is home to many residents aged 60 years and older; and
Whereas: Older adults in Roseville are the roots from which our community has grown, who bestow gifts of wisdom and insight upon younger generations and strengthen the bonds between neighbors to create a better place to live; and
Whereas: The City of Roseville recognizes Older Americans Month’s 2014 and focuses on injury prevention with the theme of “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow;” and
Whereas: Older Americans are productive, active and influential members of society, sharing essential talents, wisdom and life experiences with families, friends and neighbors; and
Whereas: Our community can provide that recognition and respect by enriching the quality of life for older Americans by:
 • Increasing opportunities to remain in their communities as active and engaged  citizens;
• Providing services, technologies and support systems that allow seniors to foster and maintain connections within the community; and
• Emphasizing the value of elders by publically recognizing their contributions to the diversity, strength and unity of our community.
 Now, Therefore Be It Resolved that the City Council hereby declare May 2014 to be Older Americans Month in the City of Roseville, County of Ramsey, State of Minnesota, U.S.A.

Be it Further Resolved that we urge every citizen to honor our older adults and the  professionals, family members and volunteers who care for them. Our recognition of older Americans and their involvement in our lives can help us achieve stronger and more meaningful connections with each other and enrich our community’s quality of life.
