2024 Chatham-Kent Senior Achievement Awards Call for Nominations

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent, Mayor Darrin Canniff and Chatham-Kent Council are taking this opportunity to thank our older adults and celebrate their achievements during Seniors’ Month in June.

The purpose of these awards is to recognize and honour older adults aged 60+ that have achieved significant goals and made outstanding contributions as volunteers within Chatham-Kent.

Recipients will be honoured as part of the 37th annual Senior Achievement awards.

“We are requesting the publics’ assistance,” said Mayor Darrin Canniff. “Everyone knows someone who has lent a helping hand, whether it be as part of a group or as an individual. Here is your chance to let us know about that person so we can recognize their contributions.”

The senior awards are a tradition that goes back to the 1980s. Since that time, more than an 1,000 seniors have been honoured for their contributions to the community.

Nomination forms will be available at all Chatham-Kent Municipal Centres, (Chatham, Blenheim, Dresden, Ridgetown, Tilbury and Wallaceburg), all Chatham-Kent public libraries, and all 11 Seniors’ Centres within the municipality. A PDF version can also be requested by emailing ckmayor@chatham-kent.ca and nominations can also be submitted at www.letstalkchatham-kent.ca/chatham-kent-senior-achievement-awards-2024. 

The 2024 Senior of the Year will be announced during the Broadcast of the Chatham-Kent Celebration of Older Adults on June 6, 2024, on Facebook and YourTV. All nominees will be recognized during this virtual event.

Deadline for receipt of nomination forms is Friday, April 5, 2024.

Mayor Canniff endorses an impartial selection committee that selects the Chatham-Kent Senior of the Year.
