ONTARIO -- During these uncertain times, do you know of a senior citizen  volunteering their time to help others? Do you know of a group performing a community service to help those in need?

The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc., would like to honor those people and groups.

The agency is accepting nominations for the Outstanding Senior Citizen and Community Service Award. Nominations can be completed on-line at or by requesting a form to be mailed to you.

The deadline for nominations is May 28.

Award recipients from a nine-county area (one awardee from each county) will be honored by Area Agency on Aging.

Nominees must be at least 60 years of age, a legal resident of Ohio for at least five years, and have made significant contributions to the community.

A husband and wife may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in community service. One Outstanding Senior Citizen Award will be presented for each county in the agency's service area (Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Seneca, and Wyandot).

Community Service Awards are targeted toward an organization, agency, service club, a media outlet, or a business that has made an outstanding contribution to the community on behalf of senior citizens. One award will be presented for the nine-county area.

Additional information, including printable nomination forms or an on-line fillable form, can be found on the AAA website at or by contacting Susan at 567-247-6458 or Nominations can be mailed, faxed, or emailed.
