Every May since 1963, people in towns and cities across the country have come together to celebrate the contributions of older Americans. AASC is using this time to show its support for seniors as they continue to enrich and strengthen communities.

AASC is one of Virginia’s 25 Area Agencies on Aging designated by the Virginia Department for the Aging to carry out the department’s mission to foster the dignity, independence and security of older Virginians by promoting partnerships with communities at the local level. AASC offers information and services for older adults residing in Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell and Tazewell counties.
