‘As I Age’ wall available at Tops

A passerby makes a note on the “As I Age” wall in the parking lot of Tops in Bradford. The wall will be available throughout the month.

May is Older Americans Month, and across the country, older Americans are taking part in activities that promote wellness and social connection.

Throughout the month, the “As I Age” wall will be available in the parking lot of Tops Market on Main Street in Bradford.

Bradford Ecumenical Home Inc., in partnership with Tops and the United Way of the Bradford Area Inc., are celebrating and honoring older Americans with this third year of the wall.

This year’s theme for the month is “engage at every age,” which emphasizes the importance of being active and involved.

“Bradford Ecumenical Home Inc. is offering an array of activities throughout the entire month of May,” said CEO Lisa Johnson. “These events and special gatherings bring older adults together with others in our community to learn, socialize and celebrate in honor of Older Americans Month. For the third year, our ‘As I Age’ Wall is on display. Any passerby is encouraged to participate by stopping by Tops, pick up a piece of chalk at the Wall and complete the sentence “As I Age…”
