South Florida 100: Happy Mother’s Day!
Charlotte Mather-Taylor, executive director, Area Agency on Aging of Broward County
Gov. DeSantis issued an executive order suspending all local coronavirus mandates. According to the CDC, in Broward, approximately 68.5% of people over 65 and 31.25% of the overall adult population have been fully vaccinated. It is as important now as ever for people to be vaccinated since mask restrictions are being lifted and more people are active in the community. If you have not yet received your vaccine and are seeking an appointment, please call the Area Agency on Aging at 954-745-9567, and we will be happy to assist you.
Did you know that 46.1% of older Americans volunteer at least www.nationalservice.gov. On May 20, the Area Agency on Aging is hosting a virtual luncheon to induct 14 honorees into the Nan Hutchinson Senior Hall of Fame. We will celebrate these exemplary Broward seniors who give back to our local community by volunteering their time and sharing their talents to help others. Whether helping children, animals, veterans or more, each one of our inductees is making a difference. Visit www.adrcbroward.org/broward-senior-hallof- fame to purchase tickets and support those who are making an impact.
