The Niagara County Office for the Aging is seeking nominations for the 2017 Niagara County Senior Citizen of the Year. Each year the office recognizes a senior who is an integral part of the community, and who gives back to and serves residents of all ages.
To qualify for the recognition, candidates must be a Niagara County resident, and at least 60 years of age. Those nominating an individual must provide their name and contact information, as well as the nominee's name and contact information and a description of why the nominee should receive the award.
Nominations can be submitted to the office by Friday, March 10, either by mail to the Niagara County Office of Aging, 111 Main St., Lockport, NY 14094, or by email to [email protected].
The Niagara County Office for the Aging's advisory council will review all nominees and will select the winner. The winner will be recognized by the New York State Office for the Aging as part of a Senior Citizen's Day in May and by the Niagara County Legislature during a meeting to celebrate May as Older American's Month.
