Apply for Service to Seniors Awards
The Rowan County Council on Aging is seeking nominations for its Fourth Annual “Service to Seniors Awards” program. The awards are designed to recognize volunteers and organizations who go above and beyond normal practice to serve older adults in the community.
A simple nomination form can be submitted by April 15 to be considered for this year’s awards.
An awards committee appointed by the Council on Aging will receive, evaluate, and select winners who will be recognized at an Awards Luncheon planned for May 13 as part of Older Americans Month at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center.
Over the past three years, 12 individuals and 12 organizations have been honored by the Council as award winners. The Council also recognizes at its luncheon businesses that have been certified earlier in the year by the Council as a “Senior Friendly Business.” Since the program began, nine companies have been certified.
Pick up a nomination form at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, 1120 South Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue or at www.ruftyholmes.org.
The Rowan County Council on Aging was re-organized in January 2007 to educate the community about issues affecting older adults; to improve conditions for local older adults; to advocate for their needs and to promote a “senior friendly community.”
