West Wimmera Shire Council will look to recognised outstanding members of the community through its annual Senior Citizen of the Year award.

Nominations for the award are now open and anyone over the age of 60 can be nominated.

The Senior Citizen of the Year award recognises an unsung hero in West Wimmera Shire.

Winners are often someone who continues to be active in the community and encourages others to do the same.

They have a positive attitude towards aging and community wellbeing.

Mayor Bruce Meyer said there were many people in the region who made an outstanding contribution to their community.

“Many of us know someone who we think should receive some thanks for their strong contribution, positive attitude and being a great role model,” he said.

“If they are also aged over 60, this is an excellent opportunity to nominate them for Senior Citizen of the Year.

“We encourage people to start thinking about who they can nominate for this award. There are many quiet achievers within our local communities who deserve recognition.”

Nomination forms are available online here. Forms can also be collected from the customer service centres at Edenhope and Kaniva.

Nominations will close at 5:00pm on Friday 26 August 2022, and the winner will be selected by Councillors in the closed session at the September 2022 Ordinary Council Meeting.
