The theme for Older Americans Month 2007 is "Older Americans: Making Choices for a Healthier Future." This theme encourages us to think differently about health and long-term services and supports, and to work together to continue to improve our current systems so that we may adequately plan for and address the needs of current and future generations. The urge is for all citizens to honor older Texans and those who care for them during May and throughout the year and for people of all ages to take time during this month to reaffirm our commitment as individuals and as a state to meet the challenges of an aging society. Working together, we can improve the lives of our older citizens, their families, and their caregivers and strive to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to make the choices they desire to enjoy a healthy and rewarding future. As our state's Baby Boomer generation rapidly becomes our next generation of older Texans, advances in medicine, public health, science, and technology are keeping us all healthier and adding years to our lives. Older Texans contribute every day to our state's social and eco- nomic well-being. They inspire us with their wisdom in the workplace, with self- lessness as they volunteer in our com- munities, and with their perseverance and dedication as they provide care for family, and friends. They embody the best of the Lone Star State, defining excellence, and sharing the expertise on which we continue to build the Texas of tomorrow. Those who work with our older citizens know that they want to have choice and control over how and where they live as they age. Our many healthcare services groups, Senior Citizens Centers, Donley County Extension, churches, Clarendon Col- lege and their partners, care givers, and volunteers all endeavor to carry out their mission to provide for and protect the independence and dignity of our older citizens. Innovative, affordable options of care and support that provide an array of choices of how and where to live are key to meeting the challenge. Both individuals and communities must plan and prepare in all areas of life to enable people to live lives of dignity and independence and help ensure a better life tomorrow.

Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis were so impressed with their own Moth- ers and so appalled at the neglect adult children showed mothers each began campaigns, independently, to honor all mothers. The efforts paid off and on May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. Today phone calls are made, cards and flowers are sent all saying "I love you Mom," and remember to do this, she may not be here next year.

This club was organized in March of this year, and their motto is "Love and Laughter is where it's at in a Purple Frock and a Big Red Hat!" The Classy Dames will be out and about with trips planned to the Gem Theatre in Claude, the Kwadahi Indian Dancers in Amarillo, and to see the play "TEXAS" and eat the wonderft0 barbecue from the Big Texan, just to name a few. There are currently eleven char- ter members, and they're looking for women who want to go out and have a good time. This past Thursday, the Classy Dames were spotted raising the roof at the Red River Steakhouse in McLean. There were nine red hats and two purple hats in attendance. Our purple hat birthday gals were Roxana Hamilton and Dorothy Brin- son. Everyone enjoyed the tasty and plentiful "all you can eat" barbecue ribs and the excellent service. It seems that everyone loves to see the Red Hats coming, because you never know what they'll do next. This club meets once a month for a meal and business meeting; and when the spirit strikes them, they'll meet at other times and at other fun places! Any age is welcome to join. If you're 50 or over, you wear red hats and purple outfits; and if you're under 50, you wear a pink hat and lavender outfits. Then when you "graduate" to 50, a celebration called a "Reduation" is performed, and you would be fitted for your new red hat! It is great fun and what an enjoyable and positive way to grow older!
