October 1st – International Day of Older Persons
Good day all
Monday a good day to give a shout out to all of our members and supporters who have been with us for so long – a few for the duration of the Organization we champion. They form the base on which we grow.
The theme for the Day this year- “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions“. – is linked to another anniversary that is at the core of the UN’s work. The 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. How many remember the contribution of a Canadian- John Peters Humphrey – to that document? His original draft text in pencil is in the archives at McGill.

Give your favourite senior(s) a hug.
