Call for nominations: Commission on Aging’s first annual Silver Citizen Award

The award is open to any county resident 65 years or older who has enhanced the community through their life’s work, engagement of others, volunteerism or selfless acts of service

VANCOUVER — Clark County recognizes that older adults are valuable contributors to the vitality of this community. To encourage and support older adults for their contributions to their communities, the Clark County Commission on Aging has established a program to recognize older adults by means of an annual award presented at the State of the County event.

The award is open to any county resident 65 years or older who has enhanced the community through their life’s work, engagement of others, volunteerism or selfless acts of service to the community. Service in any field of endeavor will be considered (e.g., education, radio, television, business, healthcare, art, music, journalism, faith-based, athletics, politics, volunteer service). A couple may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in service and various community endeavors.

All nominations must be received no later than 5 pm, Thu., Feb. 13, 2020. Award criteria and nomination forms can be found on the Commission on Aging’s webpage at www.clark.wa.gov/aging.

The Commission on Aging, supported by the Clark County Council, is a nine-member volunteer group that implements the Aging Readiness Plan and provides leadership addressing needs of aging community members.
