Celebrating Seniors Week

May 2-9th

What is Celebrating Seniors?

Founded in 2010 before launching its inaugural Celebrating Seniors Week in May 2011, Celebrating Seniors is dedicated to honoring, recognizing and serving seniors in Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park, Illinois. The organization concentrates on four main objectives:

To facilitate cooperation between the business community, government agencies and non-profit organizations for the benefit of the senior population.

To promote senior groups and organizations that serve persons 60 and older.

To raise public awareness of issues affecting seniors.

To generate funds to support at-risk and vulnerable elders.
