Every year on Aug. 21, various events and activities are held across the United States in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day. This day was created to support, honor and show appreciation to seniors and to recognize their achievements and contributions to communities. This year marks NORD’s ninth year celebrating National Seniors Day with a special event for seniors 55 and over in the City of New Orleans. This year, NORD will celebrate the national event on Friday, August 19 instead of the 21, as it falls on a Sunday.
