Seeking state’s top senior citizen

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

The search for Nevada’s Senior Citizen of the Year begins on Feb. 1.

The National Silver Haired Congress Nevada Delegation, in partnership with the Aging Services Directors Organization (ASDO), established the award last year.

Frank Pati, a 76-year-old Mesquite resident, was honored by Governor Sandoval and the Congressional delegation as the first-ever Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year. Nominators described Pati’s efforts like this:

“In the past two decades, Frank not only brought distinction to Mesquite and the state of Nevada through his senior softball tournaments and the Mesquite Senior Games, he changed the lives of many seniors in giving them a vehicle to stay active and to develop new friendships.”

Who’s the next Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year? It could be a friend, a neighbor or a community leader. It could be someone from your town or across the state.

The competition is open to all those who are age 60 and older and have lived in Nevada for five years. The nomination guidelines and forms are available at www.nevshc.org.

The deadline for nominations is March 31. The award will be presented in May.
