It is becoming more apparent that remaining socially engaged can improve the quality of life for older adults. Find out more information at https://oam.acl.gov/
Lehigh County Aging and Adult Services will use OAM 2018 to highlight how older adults in our area are engaging with friends and family, and through various community activities, during our Unsung Hero Event on May 16th. This annual tradition celebrates an older adult whose community has been enhanced through their
active engagement, volunteerism, and service to others. We all know who these wonderful people are
in our community. They are often the unsung heroes our communities cannot live without and are
always there to volunteer their time when needed.
To be eligible for consideration:
1. Must be at least 60 years of age.
2. Must be a Lehigh County resident.
3. The achievements, accomplishments or service must be performed
on a volunteer basis, not paid.
4. Have performed outstanding contributions or services that promoted,
enhanced and enriched the quality of life for others.
5. Must be available to attend the Unsung Hero celebration on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
