Encinitas Senior Awards to Honor Those Serving the Community

 
The City of Encinitas Senior Citizen Commission in partnership with the Encinitas Rotary Club is pleased to announce that they will be honoring individuals for the 2014 “Senior Citizen of the Year Award” and “Service to Seniors Award”. Both awards will be based on nominations made from the public.
 
The “Senior Citizen of the Year Award” recipient will recognize a deserving senior citizen who embraces lifelong learning, outstanding volunteerism, leadership in the community, and/or helping, teaching, mentoring or advocating for others.  The “Service to Seniors Award” will recognize a deserving citizen who through their daily work or as part of a volunteer effort has made a demonstrated impact for senior citizen(s) in the community. Both awards will be based on dedication, overarching commitment, and demonstrated impact of those served. Recipients must reside within Encinitas.
 
Award recipients will be honored at a City Council meeting with a proclamation, and a perpetual plaque housed at the Encinitas Senior Center.  Additionally, they will be recognized as the guests of honor at an Encinitas Rotary Club luncheon.
