Community Connect hooks you up and helps you out with resources you can use… this time, we’re reaching out to honor our seniors.
Y’all know I love giving people their flowers while they’re here… and the Illinois Department on Aging is giving you the chance to honor someone you know 65 and older for their excellence in community service, education, performance, graphic arts, and the work force.
Governor JB Pritzker said, “Whether you know a teacher who goes above and beyond for their students or a community member who's always lending a hand to others, we want to hear about the seniors making Illinois, Illinois.”
Submit your nominations to the IDOA through June 1st and your favorite senior could become one of four people who will be honored and inducted into the Senior Illinoisan Hall of Fame later this year.
Remember that our community moves forward best when we get the help we need and give the help we can!
