2014 Senior of the Year Award!

Posted on: February 14th, 2014 by Chloe Hamilton


This 2014 Senior of the Year aware is an annual award that was created to give each municipality in Ontario the opportunity to recognize one outstanding local senior.

Recipients are individuals who, after age 65, have enriched the social, cultural or civic life of their community without thought of personal or financial gain.  A personalized certificate with your recipient’s name will be provided and I encourage you to present it at a local ceremony during Seniors’ Month in June. This year will mark the 30th anniversary of Seniors’ Month which celebrates the contributions seniors make to their communities and province.

Ontario’s seniors deserve special recognition for their outstanding accomplishments.  By working together, we can ensure they are acknowledged in a meaningful way.
