On September 8, we pay special tribute to all the grandparents around the world. Thank you for all you do for your grandchildren whether you're with them every day, once in awhile or you have to love them from far away. You're important in their lives and appreciated for the influence you have on them.
Grandparents are very special at AARP. In fact, here in Kansas, we have a park that is dedicated to them. This park, in Wichita, is an example of what can be done in communities across the country to make them more age-friendly. While this park is dedicated to grandparents, it is for people of all ages to use and enjoy.
Happy Grandparents Day today and always!
