FLASH: Texas proclaims “Intergeneration Month: September In September, 2013, Governor Rick Perry issued a Proclamation on behalf of the State of Texas, recognizing “September” as Intergeneration Month. Texas was the first state to recognize Intergeneration “Month” last year, and again becomes the first State to proclaim “September” as Intergeneration Month.
