Fun August Fact: Did you know that there is a Society of Happy People? Founded in 1998, the Society declared its first anniversary on August 8, 1999 to be national “Admit You’re Happy Day,” now known as Happiness Happens Day. This celebration of happiness has expanded ever since, and thanks to the support of members from around the world, the Society declared August to be Happiness Happens Month. The purpose of Happiness Happens Day and Month is to share happiness and encourage people to talk and think about happiness. You can learn more about the Society of Happy People here.
Every year on Happiness Happens Day, the Society organizes an online event known as HappyThon. The purpose of this event is to send inspirational messages via social networks, emails or texts, share happy moments, philosophy, quotes and more. In honor of Happiness Happens month and for your entertainment, we want to share this fun video clip of seniors performing the popular tune “Happy.”
In this edition of the North Olmsted Senior Center eNews, we have collected interesting articles and videos, and we’ve planned more outdoor events to reconnect with you, our members. We are happy to be of service to you, so do not hesitate to reach out by phone or email.

We hope happiness finds you this month!
