Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day
In a society that some describe a "youth obsessed" Grandparents Day on Sept. 11, 2016, serves as a reminder to honor the generations that have gone before. In 1978, the U.S. Congress passed legislation that proclaimed the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day.

For this year's Grandparents Day, not only should people reach out to their own grandparents, but all older adults are encouraged to "share their wisdom, perspectives and key civic values with young people." The theme is "Do Something Grand!"
