Wanted: Older New Yorkers Who Make a Difference

2020 Winner Minnie Paramore of Monticello

One of Sullivan County's 2020 nominees for Older New Yorker was Minnie Paramore of Monticello.

Monticello, NY – May feels like a long time away, but the Sullivan County Office for the Aging is already planning for it, and you can play a part!

May is recognized nationally as Older Americans Month, acknowledging the incredible efforts and diverse contributions older adults make to communities across the nation. In collaboration with 59 agencies on aging across the State, New York seeks to honor exceptional individuals who, through their actions, demonstrate the spirit of civic engagement and selflessness.

The ceremony will take place during NYS Office for the Aging’s Older New Yorkers’ Day celebration on May 18 and will be held virtually on Facebook and YouTube. More details to follow.

Thus the Sullivan County Office for the Aging is seeking nominations of older adults from our community to be represented at this virtual 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.

The deadline for submitting nominees is February 22, 2021. Nomination forms can be obtained by contacting the Office for the Aging at 845-807-0255, then submitting to the office c/o Lise-Anne Deoul, Director of Aging Services, via email at or by mail to 100 North St., Monticello, NY 12701.
