Fall Came Quickly and You Know What That Means
The official day of fall was September 23rd and it’s surprising how quickly it came. However, for the OurSeniors team, Autumn means a lot more than pumpkin patches and seasonal decorations. It marks the time for the launch of the Fall Edition of the OurSeniors.net Magazine. What makes every edition special is that they are curated with information, resources, activities, and goodies that are perfectly suited to bring in every season. Check the online versions here: https://ourseniors.net/editions/
We want to encourage you to keep your eyes peeled for the new edition and to ensure you’re one of the first to get a peek at what makes them so engaging.
Additionally, something else right around the corner is Columbus Day which originally started as a time to reflect on the legacy of Christopher Columbus’s voyage to the U.S. in 1492. Besides Columbus Day as this is the 2nd year of recognizing Indigenous People’s Day which is meant to honor the indigenous American peoples along with their culture and their history. It is officially a Federal Holiday so Banks, Post Office etc. will be closed this coming Monday.
We’re Getting Back to the Radio!
With significant popularity in the 20s and 30s, the radio was the go-to source of information, entertainment, and communication. Even today in 2023, the radio is still significantly popular. With the perfect combination of nostalgia with a modern makeover, more than 87% of Americans listen to the radio during an average week.
