2019 OLDER AMERICAN ACT AWARD
The town of Canton is seeking nominations for the 4th annual Older Americans Act Month Award,
which will be presented to a Canton resident in the month of May.
The Canton Senior & Social Services department is currently accepting nominations through Friday, May 10th (deadline) for a Canton resident who exemplifies those ideals illustrated by the National Council on Aging's annual theme for
OLDER AMERICANS ACT MONTH.
This years' theme of "Connect, Create, Contribute" is a reminder that communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger! By engaging & supporting all community members, we recognize that older adults play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks & lives.
Older Americans Act Month, always in May, celebrates the passage of important legislation that provides funding for life sustaining services for older adults such as Dial A Ride transportation; home care and case management; and nutrition services like Congregate and Meals on Wheels programs.
This is a co-sponsored award, and will be presented to one Canton Resident on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 12:45PM at the Canton Community Center, following the normally scheduled CRT Community Cafe lunch.
