Suffolk County’s Office for the Aging announced Friday that it is accepting nominations for its Senior Citizen of the Year award through March 14.
The award recognizes a county resident, age 60 or older, who has “significantly contributed to other seniors in a meaningful and important way, either as an advocate, role model, leader or volunteer,” according to a news release from County Executive Steve Bellone.
Nominations must include the person’s name, address, phone number and a brief description of their contributions.
Entries may be mailed to Suffolk’s Office for the Aging, P.O. Box 6100, Hauppauge, NY 11788, or faxed to 631-853-8225.
Public employees who provide services to senior citizens are not eligible; neither are prior award recipients.
