Do you know a senior citizen, or a group of seniors, who make a real difference in your community? Maybe they volunteer for several organizations, serve on boards, or are well-known in your community to always lend a helping hand or simply get things done.

There are many senior citizens throughout the Hudson Valley who are doing this and more. In fact, they put folks a lot younger than themselves to shame with all they do for others. If you know someone like this, then the Dutchess County Office For the Aging wants to know about them too. They just might end up being honored at the 2018 Celebration Aging event in May at Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls.

Nominations are now being accepted in three categories, Male/ Female Senior Citizen of the year and Senior Couple of the year. Nominees must be a Dutchess County resident over the age of 60.

You can nominate someone in each category and you can nominate more than one person for each category. Nominations are being accepted until March 31 and the honorees will be announced in April.
