Crawford serves as one of the key note speakers at Older Americans Capitol event



LANSING, MI-June, 2, 2015: State Representative Kathy Crawford (R-Novi) introduced a resolution that named June 2 as Older Michiganian’s Day in conjunction with Older Americans Day across the country.

“As a life-long advocate for older Americans, I am thrilled to be able to recognize Michigan’s older adults immense contributions to our state,” said Rep. Crawford.. “Michigan’s senior population is growing, and they are a part of the foundation of our state both culturally and economically. This resolution is just a small way to show our utmost respect for their contributions.”

Rep. Crawford acted as one of the keynote speakers at the Older Americans Day Capitol Luncheon in Lansing.

“I was honored to be asked to speak at this event. As an older Michiganian myself, I am lucky to have the opportunity to be a voice for the aging,” Rep. Crawford said.

“Looking back on the past few decades services for the aging have improved immensely. Fifty years ago there were no senior transportation services, senior centers or meals on wheels and while these have made great strides in supporting independent seniors there is more that can be done and I am happy to continue being an advocate for them.”
