The PDF file was created from another document, a Word document perhaps. Open the Word document, change the date, and then use your PDF writer to create a new PDF.

If you don't have the original document, you could use Adobe Acrobat, or a similar program, or, you could stick a bit of paper over the old date, write over the new date, and then scan and print the resulting mashup.

I've got a couple of customers using PDF-XChange Viewer to annotate PDF files. Not sure that you can make new text look exactly like the surrounding text though; I haven't tried.

Note that Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader are different products. One is expensive but "edits" pdf files, the other is free and just opens them.

People always come in here and recommend free alternatives to Reader that also allow some of editing like Acrobat (though along with grumbles about bloatware, open source and evil corporations), so sit tight.
