Office of the Aging
The Niagara County Office for the Aging is seeking nominations for Niagara County Senior Citizen of the Year. Each year, the office recognizes a senior who is an integral part of the community, giving back and serving residents of all ages.
Anyone who is a Niagara County resident and at least 60 years old is eligible, and anyone can make a nomination. The required information is the name and contact information for both the nominator and nominee and a description of why the nominee should receive the award. Nominations must be submitted to the office by Feb. 27, either by mail at Niagara County Office for the Aging, 111 Main St., Suite 101, Lockport, NY, 14094, or by email at OFA@niagaracounty.com.
All nominees will be reviewed and the office's Advisory Council will select a winner. The winner will be recognized by the New York State Office of the Aging as part of a Senior Citizen's Day in May and by the Niagara County Legislature during a meeting in May to celebrate Older Americans Month.
