Almost 20 percent of Greenbrier County residents are over the age of 65, and over four million grandparents are currently the primary care givers of their grandchildren. Grandparents Day is a time to remember those who have passed and a time to honor those who are still with us.\r\n\r\nThe best gift you can give a grandparent or older family member or family friend is your time. Sharing and learning from one another is a great way to celebrate the day. The Greenbrier County Committee on Aging encourages all to share and learn from our older citizens and to take some time to honor our older citizens by giving a call, a visit or a prayer; do something \u2018grand\u2019 for our grandparents.
