A major emphasis of the World Health Organization’s Age-Friendly Communities initiative is bringing together people of all ages to share thoughts and perspectives. Yarmouth, the first town on the Cape to join the age-friendly network, held one such intergenerational event on Saturday, launching a model UN comprised of local seniors and students at D-Y High School.
Senior Services Director Kathi Bailey said other communities, and perhaps the Cape as a whole, could soon follow Yarmouth’s lead and join the international movement. “You people who live in the town of Yarmouth should be very proud of leading the way,” she said. “People all over the world are on this path as well.”
