Nominations being sought for Senior Citizen of the Year

The Michigan Office of Services to the Aging is seeking nominations for Senior Citizen of the Year. Two of Michigan’s older adults will be honored at the state Capitol on June 20, during the fifth annual Older Michiganians Day event.

Sponsored by the Michigan Office and the Commission on Services to the Aging, awards will be presented to two individuals 60 or older. One award is for leadership in the community, the other recognizes service to others.

Selections will be determined by service or leadership during the past year.

Nominees must be 60 or older on or before May 7. All nominations must be submitted by an organization, and the nomination form must be signed by a presiding officer of that organization.

Nominees can be employed at the time of the nomination, but applicants will be judged on service or leadership in unpaid volunteer positions.

Nominations must be postmarked by Monday, May 7, and mailed to: Michigan Office of Services to the Aging, Attention: 2012 Senior Citizen of the Year Award Program, PO Box 30676, Lansing, MI 48909-8176.
