COLUMBUS - To celebrate Older Americans Month (May), the Ohio Department of Aging is conducting its second annual Older Americans Month photo project on Facebook. All Ohioans, regardless of age, are invited to submit photos they have taken that they believe capture the essence of the 2011 Older Americans Month theme, "Older Ohioans - Connecting Communities."
From now through May 31, Ohioans can visit www.facebook.com/OhioDepartmentOfAging and post photos they have taken or own to the department's wall. Posting requires a free Facebook account and the photos must conform to Facebook's terms of service. Individuals also may submit their photos by mail to: Ohio Department of Aging, ATTN: Communications Division, 50 W. Broad St./9th Fl., Columbus OH 43215-3363. Please note: we cannot return photos.
The Department of Aging reserves the right to use images submitted in its online and print publications.
