Nominate a Farmington area senior volunteer for annual award

The Farmington Area Commission on Aging and the City of Farmington Hills Special Services Department’s Adults 50 & Better Division are seeking nominations for Volunteer Service Awards to be presented at this year’s Annual Volunteer Breakfast.

The Gold Award is presented to an individual 50 years or better who is a current active volunteer providing service in Farmington and/or Farmington Hills. The Margaret Loridas Diamond Award is the same, except that it is presented to an individual 75 years or better.

These two awards provide the Commission on Aging the opportunity to recognize and honor the outstanding volunteerism found in the community. New this year, the Commission on Aging will recognize a community-based organization or business that goes above and beyond to serve older adults of Farmington/Farmington Hills with the Community Commitment Award.

The City of Farmington Hills is also seeking nominations for the Volunteer of the Year Award. Nominees must be active volunteers in the programs offered in the Adults 50 & Better Division. The Annual Volunteer Breakfast, held every spring, is always a special event attended by more than 250 volunteers and honored invited guests.

Citizens are encouraged to submit nominations to be considered for these prestigious awards. The deadline for submitting nominations is February 23, 2018. Nomination forms can be found at farmlib.org/COA, received by mail by calling 248-473-1830, or picked up at the Costick Center at 28600 W. 11 Mile Rd. in Farmington Hills.
