Nationals Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke is encouraging nominations for recognition as part of the 2022 NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.
“Seniors are invaluable to our small communities as volunteers, carers and role models – even more so during such a challenging year,” Ms Cooke said.
“If you know a senior who helps make our community diverse, inspiring and active, then I encourage you to nominate them for acknowledgement of their contribution.”
Winners of the Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival which runs from March 25-April 3. The awards program is part of an exciting schedule of events across the state.
The Festival is the largest for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere. It enables older people to engage with each other, their community, services, and supports.
The festival is about celebrating the positive impact of older people in our families and society, and these initiatives also provide an important opportunity for seniors to participate in their communities in meaningful and engaging ways.
Nominations are now open for the awards program which celebrates the work and achievements of seniors in the community.
To nominate a senior or find further information on the program, please email email@example.com or call the Junee Electorate Office on 6924 2533
