Nominations for Ashland County Outstanding Senior Citizen deadline is May 25

The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. (AAA) is currently accepting nominations for the Outstanding Senior Citizen and Community Service Awards. The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 25. Award recipients from a nine-county area (one awardee from each county) will be honored with a special Awards Ceremony at the Area Agency on Aging at Hawkins Corner.

Nominees must be at least 60 years of age, a legal resident of Ohio for at least five years and have made significant contributions to the community. A husband and wife may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in community service. One Outstanding Senior Citizen Award will be presented for each county in our service area (Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Seneca and Wyandot).

Community Service Awards are targeted to an organization, agency, service club, business or the media that makes an outstanding contribution to the community on behalf of senior citizens. One award will be presented for the total nine county area.
