In Yasothon province, civil servants, merchants and members of the public have paid their respects and poured water on Governor Nikorn Suksai in honour of his role as City Patriarch. The activity is held annually in the province. 

Bangkok’s Health Department held a ballroom dancing showcase involving senior citizens ahead of National Elderly Day. Intended to promote the care and value of older citizens, the event theme was “Three Generations Coming Together, 4.0 Era Elderly”.
