Senior award nominations
Garfield County Council on Aging is seeking nominations for awards to be presented to seniors, individuals, business, agencies and/or organizations for their outstanding contributions and positive impact on seniors in our community.
The nomination and award selection is a local process through the Garfield County Council on Aging. Nominations are submitted to the council and may be made for one of the two award categories:
Senior Citizen of the Year, or
Friend of the Seniors.
We have an open process and all nominations are permitted and encouraged to be submitted. The nominations deadline is March 15, 2012.
The chosen award recipients are invited to attend the Garfield County celebration at the Senior Programs Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on May 5, 2012 and the Alpine Area Agency on Aging 24th Senior Awards Ceremony on May 16, 2012 in Frisco.
Both events will be held in conjunction with Older Americans month that celebrates the vital contributions seniors make to our society. Please click here for a copy of the nomination form. Please return the completed nomination form to Judy Martin via the email address on the bottom of the form, or by fax to 970-928-0465.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this wonderful tradition. No doubt this is a time when inspiration and encouragement is needed, and we look forward to a successful awards program. If further information is needed, please feel free to contact Judy Martin at the Garfield County Department of Human Services, Senior Programs 970-945-9191, ext. 3061.
