The Village of Lombard is seeking nominations for the tenth annual Senior of the Year Awards, to help celebrate accomplishments of seniors in the community.
The Senior Man and Senior Women of the Year Awards will be presented at the Village’s Senior Fair, to be held Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Lombard Community Building at Lombard Common Park. The award was founded by the late former Village President William “Bill” Mueller, together with the Village’s Community Relations committee. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding seniors who contribute to our community.
“We’re asking Lombard residents to honor local senior citizens by nominating them for Senior of the Year,” said Village President Keith Giagnorio. “We want to say thank you to our seniors for their dedication to the Village.”
Nominees must have a Lombard home mailing address and be 65 years of age or older. Nominations must include a brief statement, 50 words or less, on why the senior should be considered for this award as well as a short biography of the person. The winners will be selected by the Village’s Community Relations committee and receive the Village President’s Award along with a gift certificate to a local restaurant. The “Senior of the Year” award winner will also be honored by riding in the 2016 Lilac Parade.
The nomination deadline is Sept. 9, 2015. All nominations must be received prior to the deadline. Nominations may be sent to: Village of Lombard, Village Manager’s Office, Attention: “Senior of the Year” Award, 255 E. Wilson, Lombard, IL, 60148.
