Senior Citizen of the Year Nominations

Nomination forms may be obtained by calling the Rockland County Office for the Aging at (845) 364-2110 or click on the above links to download. To be considered, nominations must be received in the Office for the Aging by Thursday, February 8th, 2018.

Each year the County of Rockland recognizes two older adults who share their time, effort and expertise as volunteers in our communities. The Advisory Council to the Office for the Aging selects two from the nominations submitted by organizations and members of the community.

The Rockland County Office for the Aging Advisory Council is asking your assistance to select recipients for the 2018 "Senior Citizen of the Year" award and for the 2018 "Outstanding Contribution by a Senior Citizen" award.

The criteria for each award is as follows:

"Senior Citizen of the Year" – volunteer aged 60 and over, a Rockland resident who creates and/or plans programs that provide needed support services and activities that enhance the lives of senior citizens in the community. Other volunteer work that a person does to improve the quality of life of the people of their community can also be considered.

"Outstanding Contribution by a Senior Citizen" – volunteer aged 60 and over, a Rockland resident who has made a positive and beneficial contribution to the senior citizens of the community. Other volunteer work that a person does to improve the quality of life of the people of their community can also be considered.

A senior may be nominated for both awards.
