Oneida County Office for Aging/Continuing Care and the Long-Term Council are seeking nominations for their Older American Awards.

Nominations for “outstanding community contribution by a senior citizen or couple” and for “outstanding community contribution by an organization or business” are due by April 1.

Nomination forms are available at area community senior centers, for download at and by calling the Office for the Aging/Continuing Care at 315-798-5465.

An awards ceremony for the winners will take place during Older American Month in May. This year’s theme is “Engage at Every Age,” which emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being and celebrates the many ways older adults make a difference in the community.
