Older Michiganians Day

 

Decisions made in Lansing have a direct and far-reaching impact on the quality of life for seniors in Michigan. Each year, the Area Agency on Aging 1-B participates in the Older Michiganian’s Day Rally held on the lawn of the Capitol Building. This very important annual advocacy helps give seniors a voice and help legislators understand both the needs and the voting power of seniors.
