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 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 with at least one year of service to seniors. The final award, the Excellence in Aging Award for an Organization, will be awarded to an organization that has made an outstanding contribution to Alexandria seniors.
Award winners will be recognized at a reception May 8 at Goodwin House Alexandria. Keynote speaker for the reception will be Gail Kohn, Executive Director of Capitol Hill Village.
