United Nations International Day of Older Persons

October 23, 2017

This year, several of us were honored to attend the 27th anniversary of this special day. The topic was "Stepping into the Future: Tapping the Talents and Participation of Older Persons."  As members of TTN, we certainly can relate to this as a worthwhile focus. Marc Freedman, the founder of Encore.org was the keynote speaker and as always, brought a committed yet joyous perspective to the topic. Marc's talk begins at 1:07:00 but you can watch the all the speakers YouTube.
