National Senior Citizens Day 2017

National Senior Citizens Day 2017

 

On August 19th, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5847 declaring August 21st to be to be National Senior Citizens Day. This proclamation was intended to honor the valuable contributions our elders have made and celebrate the impact they have had on our communities, businesses, and families. As a organization that works largely with the senior population, our staff at Senior Financial Group would like to extend our gratitude and a heartfelt “THANK YOU!” to the senior citizens in our community and in our lives that have made our past, present, and future so much richer.

Many of our clients are seniors, and we are thrilled to celebrate this day in honor of their many achievements and to encourage our community to show appreciation and love for those with years of wisdom to share. We are proud to do our daily best to help our local senior population remain independent financially, through assisting with their Medicare and insurance needs, as well as many other ways through the help of our community business partners.

A senior citizen is understood to be anyone older than 60 years old, however in today’s society, this seems quite young! Many businesses even provide discounts for those 55+. Below we have included a list of senior discounts available in Tennessee to check out! Comment below if you know of any discounts available that are not listed.
