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 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, age 60 or 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. 29, 2021.

We continue to pray for and give thanks to all who serve to keep us safe and protected, law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, health care providers, highway crews and truck drivers, essential workers, farmers, teachers and so many more.

The passing of a beloved family dog is heartbreaking. Jupiter was with the Paul, Liza and Abby for 16 wonderful years. He loved coming to Oma’s house where he knew there was always a good treat waiting. Goodbye faithful loving companion. You are greatly missed. Now you can run and play again. Have fun with Lexie and Rusty.

Until next week take care, be thankful, be courteous, respectful, compassionate and kind. Your act of kindness may change someone’s life.
