We always enjoy recognizing older adults for their accomplishments. On a yearly basis, we like to recognize two Washington County residents who are 60 or older. We accept nominations throughout the year. Through an anonymous voting process, two individuals are chosen.
Attend a ceremony and receive a free luncheon with other awardees throughout New York State, sponsored by the New York State Office for The Aging (NYSOFA)
Receive a Senior Day Commemorative book with biographies and pictures of all awardees throughout New York State
Recognition on the NYSOFA website (each county is honored during one week from June - December)
In addition, our office and the NYSOFA work with the local press for recognition; we notify the awardees Assembly Member and Senator who may be present to provide an additional recognition certificate.
