Celebrating Grandparents on September 13th


Grandparents play a key role in the family. Maybe more so now than ever before. With the average age life expectancy in the U.S. climbing to 78.8 years of age, today’s youth often have grandparents and great-grandparents involved in their lives. Celebrating their friendship and love has become an annual event each fall across the United States. This year the celebration will take place on September 13th.
