Mill Race Center is seeking nominees for the Joan Pearcy Senior Citizen of the Year Award.
The award has been given since 1957 to recognize “an outstanding senior citizen for his or her service to the community.”
Nominees for the award must be 65 years of age or older and must have been a resident of Bartholomew County for at least the past 12 months.
Nominees may be a person or a couple who “has actively contributed as a volunteer and has a history of volunteerism, is innovative and devoted to making a difference in our community, and may not necessarily be widely recognized in the community.”
The award was renamed in 2011 to honor Joan Pearcy after her death in 2010 for her years of behind-the-scenes service to the community.
Nomination forms are available at the Mill Race Center and can be submitted by mail or email. Email nominations should be sent to Bob Pitman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations should be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on Aug. 22. The recipient of the award will be honored Sept. 9 at a reception during the Senior Expo.
