We encourage and celebrate countless contributions that Albany Seniors make to our community. Their time, experience, and talents benefit family, peers, and neighbors every day. Communities, organizations, and individuals of all ages are also making their marks. 

This year’s theme highlights the difference everyone can make – in the lives of older adults, in support of caregivers, and to strengthen communities.

We invite you to make your mark with us virtually, online in May!
