The Area Agency on Aging for Northeastern Vermont is seeking nominations for its "Agency on Aging Community Service Award" to be presented at the Agency's annual meeting in November.

The award was established in 2003 to recognize an older adult who has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of the community without thought of personal or financial gain. Last year, Joe Queenin, of Derby Line, was selected for the award in recognition of his many years of service to his community.

Agency on Aging Board President John Perry of St. Johnsbury said, "Seniors make a difference in our communities each and every day. This award provides an opportunity for community members to honor an exceptional older adult."

Nomination forms can be obtained from the Area Agency on Aging for Northeastern Vermont by calling the Senior HelpLine at 800-642-5119 or by stopping by one of the AAA offices (in Newport in the Derby Times Square Building) or in St. Johnsbury (in the old Summer Street School). The deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 24.

For more information about the Agency on Aging Community Service Award or the services and programs available to support the independence of older adults, contact the Agency on Aging for Northeastern Vermont at 748-5182, 334-2190 or 1-800-642-5119.
