If you know a senior who has made a positive impact on the community the City of Pickering wants to hear from you.

Pickering has launched its Senior of the Year Award, a special initiative that honours outstanding contributions of senior residents.

The award will recognize one individual aged 65-plus each year who has contributed to and enriched the social, cultural or environmental fabric of the community.

Per a release from the City, residents are invited to nominate a deserving senior resident that has “dedicated their efforts to making Pickering a better place to live” and have demonstrated a commitment to improving the social, cultural or environmental aspects of Pickering.

Applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 1. To nominate a deserving senior, fill out the nomination form available on the City of Pickering’s website at https://www.pickering.ca/en/adults-55-plus.aspx with detailed information about the nominee’s contributions.

The Senior of the Year Award will be presented as part of the Senior Month Big Band event in June.
