Fun Holiday – On August 19, 1988, President Ronald Reagan issued a Proclamation 5847 creating National Senior Citizens Day to be August 21. On this day, we are encouraged to recognize and show appreciation for the value and contribution of our senior citizens. If you are a senior citizen, enjoy your day any way you desire. After all, this is your day!
