100 Years of Pro Senectute SI

100 Years of Pro Senectute

Many attractions 

The Pro Senectute Foundation has been supporting elderly people and their relatives since 1917. This major milestone is being celebrated with a whole series of events and activities. 

Pro Senectute is to be a guest at the Swiss National Day celebrations on the Rütli meadow on 1 August. There will also be a concert tour during which the Swiss Youth Symphony Orchestra will play along live to the classic Charlie Chaplin movie “Modern Times”. And last but not least, Pro Senectute is going on tour (see box).

This anniversary stamp highlights the ser- vices provided by the institution in a pos- itive visual language that conveys vitali- ty and effortlessness. Proceeds from the surcharge will bene t the Foundation.
