Nominations needed for "Celebrating Seniors Week" at Aging Care Connections
LA GRANGE - In honor of Older Americans Month, Aging Care Connections will be hosting "Celebrating Seniors Week" events May 16-23.
The week of events, organized by community members and spearheaded by Aging Care Connections, will include informational seminars, intergenerational activities and fun events geared toward celebrating those older adults in our communities.
A Resource Guide is being developed to provide helpful information, and will be published in early May. A “60 Over 60” program, listing 60 people over the age of 60 who have made a difference in their community or in the lives of others, will be published in the guide and will be highlighted in other ways throughout the week.
Residents are asked if they know of someone from Lyons, Riverside or South Proviso Townships who is over 60 and has done or is doing exceptional things, to complete a nomination form available at Aging Care and either mail or email it back to the Celebrating Seniors Week 60 Over 60 committee.
The nominees will be contacted, asked a few questions and asked to provide a recent photo. The Resource Guide will then print the 2013 “Yearbook” of 60 Over 60 nominees, showcasing the best of the best, and an event will be held in May to celebrate the nominees as well.
The deadline for nominations is March 15.
For any other questions, call Linda Hussey at Aging Care Connections, 708-354-1323.
