Summer Recap and Grandparents Day
It's been an exciting summer here at GrandPad and as we look towards fall, we want to remind everyone of Grandparents Day on September 9. Contrary to belief, Hallmark didn't come up with Grandparents Day - originally founded by youth educator, Marian McQuade in 1973, the day was meant to educate young people in her community about seniors and the important contributions they've made throughout our lives.
To honor grandparents everywhere, we encourage you to post a photo or video on GrandPad's Facebook page and tell us what makes them special. Join us in counting down to Grandparents Day by celebrating all the reasons we have to connect with older seniors in our lives.
Here are some other exciting updates from GrandPad:
- In May, we announced a partnership with Consumer Cellular, the nation's top rated mobile service provider for adults 50+.
- Our Chief Gerontologist, Dr. Kerry Burnight, was interviewed by Peter Bowes for his podcast, Live Long and Master Aging.
- GrandPad was included in the Orange County Business Journal's list of largest telecommunications companies.
