Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging Honors Local Outstanding Seniors

 

            Since 1976, the Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. has honored outstanding senior citizens from each county of Planning and Service Area 5 and has presented a Community Service Award to one organization providing continuing service to Ohio’s senior citizens.  Since that time,

367 Outstanding Senior Citizens Awards and 39 Community Service Awards have been presented.  These annual awards were presented at the Area Agency on Aging, Hawkins Corner, Ontario, Ohio on Thursday, September 24, 2015.

 

            Duana Patton, Chief Executive Officer of the Area Agency on Aging, welcomed the attendees and guests, local and state elected officials from Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Seneca and Wyandot Counties. 

 

The Knox County Outstanding Senior Citizen Award was presented to Marsha Mosser who was recognized for her volunteerism at Centerburg Pointe where she splits her time between STNA and activities assistant. Marsha works with residents, talking and reading to them, activities, planning events and simply going above and beyond with caring and kindness.   

                       

Ms. Patton states “By recognizing these award recipients today, I hope the contributions made by the individuals in their communities are an inspiration to all, regardless of age.  Community service can begin at any age and is something you can do for a lifetime.”

 

In addition, three Safe Driving Awards were given in recognition of transportation service drivers throughout the aging services network in Knox County.
