What is Maine Seniors Day?
A day to recognize the service and contributions of all seniors.
Bill LD 560, recently signed into law by Governor Paul LePage, makes the second Saturday of September Maine Seniors Day – a day set aside to celebrate all of Maine’s senior citizens.
Maine is the oldest state in the nation and Maine attracts retirees from all over the United States.
In Maine 38.5% of our population are 50 plus and they control over:
- 70% of the wealth with over 70% of all money market accounts;
- and they buy over 43% of all new cars, and 48% of luxury cars; they account for over 80% of all luxury travel, and purchase over 70% of all prescriptions
- and over 60% of all healthcare spending.
Each year, this day of recognition will acknowledge with pride the contributions that older Maine citizens make to our communities and the richness they bring to family life in Maine.
