Usually, the second Sunday in September is Grandparents Day. But given all that grandparents contribute to families and society-at-large, why limit the tribute to just one day? Join us in celebrating Grandparents Week 2011, from September 12th through the 16th. If you're a grandparent, be sure that you and your grandkids visit Generations United's special site during this week to find fun and meaningful ways to celebrate. The site offers blogs, a peek at celebrities who were raised by their grandparents, social activities to do together, and special ways to thank grandparents.
Note: We meet the third Wednesday, November 16, this month.
