White House Issues Grandparents Day Proclamation

President Obama has just issued a proclamation for National Grandparents Day!

"Throughout our history, American families have been guided and strengthened by the support of devoted grandparents. These mentors have a special place in our homes and communities, ensuring the stories and traditions of our heritage are passed down through generations. On National Grandparents Day, we honor those who have helped shape the character of our Nation, and we thank these role models for their immeasurable acts of love, care, and understanding."

Read the rest at the White House's website. We at Generations United wish all older adults a very happy Grandparents Day this Sunday, September 12!
