The Alexandria Commission on Aging, which advocates for the needs of Alexandria seniors, is seeking nominations for its Annual Excellence in Aging Awards. These awards honor individuals, regardless of age, who have provided service to older Alexandrians or demonstrated superior contributions in advancing issues and projects that favorably affect older Alexandrians.
The Annie B. Rose Lifetime Award will be given to an individual who has served seniors for at least 10 years. A second award, in honor of Lois Van Valkenburgh, will be given to an individual citizen with at least one year of service to seniors. A third award, the Excellence in Aging Award for an Organization, will be awarded to an organization that has made an outstanding contribution to Alexandria seniors. The fourth award, the Public Service Award, will be given to a City employee who has advanced, improved or otherwise contributed to making Alexandria a more livable community for all ages during the course of their job.
Award winners will be recognized at a reception Tuesday, May 12 at 6 p.m. in the Vola Lawson Lobby in City Hall.
