Odell Joins Seniors for St. Patrick’s Luncheon

 

PHOTO CAPTION: Irish eyes were smilin’ and it was the wearin’ of the green this week as area senior citizens gathered to celebrate the feast day of their favorite Irish saint. The annual Office for the Aging St. Patrick’s Day celebrations were held at Putnam County Golf Course in Mahopac on Monday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 19 in order to accommodate all who wanted to participate. And participate they did. More than 250 of Putnam’s older residents enjoyed their traditional corned beef and shepherd’s pie luncheon on Monday with another 190 attending on Wednesday.

Search for Outstanding Putnam Seniors Is On

Once again Director of the Office for the Aging Patricia Sheehy and the Putnam County Senior Citizens Advisory Board are seeking nominations from the public for this year’s Senior Citizen of the Year award.

“This year’s nominating theme is “Safe Today, Healthy Tomorrow,” said Sheehy. “We are focusing on older New Yorkers who demonstrate the power to make a difference through civic engagement and volunteerism and how that impacts on the physical, mental and/or environmental health and safety of our communities,” she said.

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell has designated 2014 as the Year of the Senior Citizen and is looking forward to seeing who among Putnam’s many seniors will be nominated.

“We are fortunate to have a very active senior population,” said Odell. “Selecting one man and one woman from among so many seniors who do so much to make a difference and enhance the lives of Putnam residents will be an exciting challenge.”

Candidates must be 60 years of age or older and residents of Putnam County.

Two seniors from each of New York’s counties will be honored at a luncheon in Albany on May 6. Putnam’s winners will also be honored at the annual Putnam County Senior Volunteer Ceremony this spring.

Nominations should be made on an official form which can be obtained from the Office of the Aging or downloaded from their website: http://www.putnamcountyny.com/ofa.

Completed nomination forms must be received by Wednesday, March 19, 2014. Forms may be mailed to: Senior Award, Putnam County Office for the Aging, 110 Old Route Six Center, Building No. 1, Carmel, NY  10512  or faxed to (845) 808 1942.

Employees of federal, state, county, or local municipalities who provide services to senior citizens are not eligible to be nominated. Previous recipients of this award are also ineligible.

For more information or to request a nomination form, please call the Putnam County Office for the Aging at (845) 808-1700.
