Monticello, NY – While May is recognized nationally as Older Americans Month – acknowledging the incredible efforts and diverse contributions older adults make to communities across the nation – the NYS Office for the Aging has rescheduled the Older New Yorkers’ Day Celebration originally planned for this month. Instead, out of an abundance of caution due to COVID-19, the celebration will be held on October 1, 2021 in digital-only format.
As a result, Sullivan County’s older adults have an extended chance to be recognized for their selflessness and civic-mindedness, as the deadline for submitting nominees is now July 1.
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.
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 Lise-Anne.Deoul@co.sullivan.ny.us or by mail to 100 North St., Monticello, NY 12701.
