Do you know a person or couple over the age of 60 with a strong dedication to volunteerism and civic involvement?
The search for Dutchess County’s four “Senior Citizens of the Year” has officially begun, and the county is seeking nominations in the categories of senior male, senior female and senior couple of the year.
The awards are presented at the Celebration of Aging held in May in honor of Older Americans Month.
Nomination forms and more information are available by calling the county Department of Aging Office at 845-486-2555, or you can find a copy of the form online, on page 4 of the winter edition of the Spotlight on Seniors, at: www.co.dutchess.ny.us/CountyGov/Departments/Aging/AGIndex.htm.
The Celebration of Aging also honors residents of the county who are or will be turning 100 or older anytime during 2014, or will be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary, or greater. Send that information in by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 845-486-2555.
