Mayor Brown Celebrates 11th Annual Older Americans Month in the City of Buffalo


Buffalo, N.Y. – Mayor Byron W. Brown proclaimed the Month of May as ‘Older Americans Month in the City of Buffalo’ at the Richmond Summer Senior Center.

“I’m happy to once again celebrate Older Americans Month in the City of Buffalo,” said Mayor Brown, while thanking the City’s community partners who are helping to make this month-long celebration a success. “Our seniors are an invaluable asset for our City, and we’re honored to offer events throughout the month of May that encourage them to take advantage of all the resources Buffalo has to offer. I thank our Division of Senior Services for their constant commitment to providing services for our seniors all year long.” 

Joined by Otis T. Barker, Sr., Commissioner of the Department of Community Services and Recreational Programming, and Douglas R. Ruffin, Director of the Division of Senior Services, Mayor Brown invited seniors, as well as their family members and friends of every age, to participate in the many activities the City has planned this month. 

“It is only fitting that we honor our senior population and cherish their wisdom, but it’s also important to continue to provide activities that will get them out of the house and interacting with their peers,” said Commissioner Barker.

With many of Buffalo’s seniors still working, trying new things, taking charge, striving for wellness, and focusing on independence and engagement, the City will continue to create and support lively and valuable programs for our senior community.

The full calendar of events can be found on the City website, Call the City of Buffalo Division of Senior Services for more information (716) 851-4141.
