On Wednesday, October 7, Lombard's Man and Woman of the Year Awards were presented during the 10th Annual Senior Fair. Village President Keith Giagnorio welcomed seniors and introduced State Representative Peter Breen, who thanked attendees and nominees.

"Today we recognize Lombard's senior citizens and their contributions to our Village," said Village Board Trustee Robyn Pike, the Chairperson of the Community Relations Committee who puts on the fair. "Whether it's volunteering to help out, or making an effort to be a good neighbor, each one of you - in your own way - help to make Lombard such a great place to call home."

The 2015 Senior Man of the Year is Marvin Schulgen, and the Woman of the Year is Lonnie Morris. Marv has spent many years volunteering for organizations throughout the Lombard community, is an active Alumni of the Citizen's Police Academy, and tours senior homes with his choir. Lonnie has dedicated much of her time to the Lombard Garden Club and to helping to preserve Lombard's natural environment by spearheading the Village's inclusion in the Cool Cities program, which aims to decrease a city's carbon footprint.


The Village received six impressive nominations from the community this year including: Norma Sayad George, Jim Hollenbeck, Jessie Joniak, Lonnie Morris, Marv Schulgen, and Marcie Shusis.

The Senior Fair was attended by approximately 300 seniors and offered flu shots, massages and useful information from more than 30 vendors. The Senior Fair is run by the Community Relations Committee which consists of Chairperson Trustee Pike, Alternate Chairperson Trustee William Ware, and committee members, Pamela Bedard, Ahmed Ali, Michael Ledonne, Sharon Vish, Barb Ware, Gladys Piper and Anthony Pacilli.
