The importance of older Americans and the contributions they make to their families and communities was highlighted when the Vinton County Commissioners met Monday, May 8, and declared May as Older Americans Month. 

The proclamation was passed after a visit from a group which included Area Agency District 7 representatives Jenni Lewis, Katey Scites and Kristina Justus and Vinton County Senior Citizens Director Rhoda Toon Price.

Lewis explained the agency serves people in Vinton County and nine other area counties, with many services to offer, including the Passport Program. In Vinton County, 109 citizens benefit from the Passport Program. The program helps Medicaid-eligible, older Ohioans get the long-term support they need to stay in their homes. Lewis added Ohio has 2.5 million older citizens and it is the fastest-growing demographic.

Vinton County Commissioner Mike Bledsoe stated he appreciates the work the agency does and all the benefits it provides to the older population.

Lewis also reminded the commissioners of two important dates on the Area Agency's calendar. The annual Appreciation Brunch is set for Friday, Aug. 25 in Portsmouth and the annual meeting is set for Wednesday, Oct. 18, but the location is still to be determined.

Commissioner President Tim Eberts thanked the group for coming and noted the county is glad to note this important observance.
