Nominations sought for Service to Seniors award

The Rowan County Council on Aging is seeking nominations for its fifth Annual “Service to Seniors Awards” program. The awards are designed to recognize volunteers of all ages, as well as organizations, who go above and beyond normal practice to serve older adults in the community.
A simple nomination form can be submitted by April 13 for one 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 11 as part of Older Americans Month at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center.
Over the past four years, 16 individuals and 14 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, 13 companies have been certified.
Nomination forms can be obtained from Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, 1120 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. or at www.ruftyholmes.org
The Rowan County Council on Aging was reorganized in January 2007 for the purpose of educating and informing individuals and the community about public issues affecting older adults; to develop strategies for improving conditions for older adults in Rowan County; to advocate for older adult needs and public policies to address them; and to promote a “senior friendly community.”
