CATSKILL - Richard Golden, Chairperson of the Advisory Council to the Greene County Department for the Aging (Human Services), announces that nominations are being accepted for the annual Greene County Senior Citizen Awards. The two awards, presented annually, are the Senior Citizen of the Year and Outstanding Contribution by a Senior Citizen.
The purpose of the awards is to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of senior citizens who have volunteered their time and energy to help other people, their communities, and/or special projects. The dedication of these volunteers help to make Greene County a better place for all of us. The individuals chosen on the county level will then represent Greene County for recognition for New York State awards.
Any Greene County resident, 60 and older, can be nominated for these awards. Achievements must be voluntary in nature; performed in Greene County and not part of paid employment. Past award winners may be nominated only if seven or more years have passed since last recognized.
If you know someone who deserves this recognition, contact the Greene County Department of Human Services at 518-719-3555 for an official nomination form. Incomplete forms will not be considered as eligible. Any inquiries for further information may also be directed to the department. Deadline for entries is Jan. 31, 2020.
