Nominations are now being accepted through the month of June for the Brown County Outstanding Senior Citizen recognition for 2013.
Seniors who have reached the age of 70 by June 1, 2013, can be nominated. Recognition will be based largely on how the nominee has touched the lives of other people in their community, the scope of volunteer involvement in various community organizations, as well as the variety, quality and quantity of community service performed after the age of 65.
Nominees must currently do a volunteer activity that is unpaid and demonstrate commitment to their local community. Nominees will be recognized for their community involvement at the Brown County Fair in August. Both a man and a woman can be selected to represent Brown County on Senior Day at the 2013 Minnesota State Fair on Aug. 29.
Those wishing to make nominations can obtain official nomination forms by contacting their local Senior Citizen group representative or Bob Apitz at Brown County Family Services, PO Box 788, New Ulm, MN 56073.
