Meet The Amazings!

Meet The Amazings! is an interactive Facebook page launched in 2016 to promote awareness of the fabulous, thriving and happy older adults all around us, celebrate them, and provide useful tips and resources to those who would like to live life to the fullest – whatever their current age.

Here’s the Huffington Post article that started it all:
