WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is seeking nominations of seniors who have made a positive difference in Westchester for induction into the Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.
“The Senior Hall of Fame is a proud Westchester tradition,” Astorino said. “It is a wonderful way to recognize seniors who have generously given their time and energy to benefit their communities and the county at large. Don’t miss this opportunity to put someone special in the limelight.”
Those selected will be inducted at a festive luncheon on Friday, Dec. 5, in the Grand Ballroom of the Westchester Marriott Hotel.
Here are the requirements for nomination:
- Be at least 60 years old and live in Westchester
- Have made significant contributions to improve life in the county
- Be an outstanding leader or advocate
- Have done professional work that reflects innovative solutions to fulfill unmet community needs (if nomination is based on paid professional work)
- Not be a past Hall of Fame inductee (see list of former inductees www.westchestergov.com/seniors ).
All nominations will be reviewed by a judging committee of past Senior Hall of Fame honorees, members of the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services (DSPS) Aging Network, the county’s Senior Council and the Older Americans Act Advisory Council.
“Part of that recognition is because today’s older generation developed a way of life that reflects the caring and generosity of its people,”said DSPS Commissioner Mae Carpenter. “Dynamic seniors have made enormous contributions to Westchester over many years.”
