Senior Services seeks nominations for the 2014 Inspire Positive Aging Award

Monday, March 31, 2014

Senior Services is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Inspire Positive Aging Award.

King County is filled with older adults, whose lives inspire us about how to age with grace, enthusiasm, creativity, hope, and energy. They quietly make life better for others even as their years advance. Senior Services created the Inspire Positive Aging Award in 2006 to recognize such inspiring elders.

“Is there a senior in your life who has inspired you?” asks Senior Services CEO Paula Houston. 
“You may have a parent, mentor, older neighbor or high school teacher, whose life exemplifies positive aging through community involvement, healthy living, relationships, and endurance—all the traits we ourselves hope to exhibit as we age. Join us in celebrating positive aging and nominate someone you know for the Inspire Positive Aging Award.”

The recipient of the 2013 Inspire Positive Aging Award was 78-year-old Dotti Lydon. She currently dedicates her energy and enthusiasm to volunteering at the Lifelong AIDS Alliance after retiring from a career in service to others as a registered nurse.

The deadline is May 2, 2014 and nomination forms are available online. Those eligibile are individuals 60 and over who live in King County. Anyone is eligible to submit a nomination.

The recipient receives two domestic, roundtrip airlines tickets to a destination of his/her choice and a one-year membership to his/her King County senior center. The individual who nominates the recipient receives a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card.

The Inspire Positive Aging Award will be announced on May 31, 2014 at Senior Services’ Annual Meeting. The free lunch meeting is open to the public, however, seating is limited and advance registration is required.

Established in 1967, Senior Services promotes positive aging for thousands of seniors and their families each year through an integrated system of quality programs and senior centers.
