Nominations sought for AARP senior service awards

Active seniors in the area are due for some honors from AARP (American Association of Retired People) Michigan.
The group is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Michigan Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors 50-and-older Michiganders who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
“AARP Michigan is excited to shine a light on volunteers who are using what they've learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said AARP Michigan State Director Paula D. Cunningham.

Nomination deadline is Sept. 15 and Nomination forms are available at
Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Michigan volunteers based on the ways the nominee's work has improved the community, supported the AARP vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced in early fall.
AARP Michigan Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must be 50 years or older and the achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay. Couples or partners who perform service together are also eligible; however, teams are not eligible.
Officials said that this is not a posthumous award. For more information or questions about eligibility and award rules, visit, email, or call AARP Michigan at 1-866-227-7448.
