Monticello, NY – The NYS Office for the Aging will celebrate Older New Yorkers’ Day on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, and Sullivan County has an opportunity to include up to two local honorees!
At the ceremony in Albany, all honorees will receive a package that includes:
• A commemorative pin
• A hard copy of the book of biographies
• A certificate
Additionally, they will be featured on social media and rightfully celebrated in local media.
The deadline for submitting nominees is February 7. Thus the Sullivan County Office for the Aging is seeking nominations of older adults from the local community to be represented at this event. These nominations can come from civic leaders, elected officials, and community organizations.
The nominee should be a volunteer aged 55 or older that has made a difference in the community through civic engagement.
