Do you know someone who has done extraordinary work as a senior member of our community or as an advocate for the environment? Rockland County wants to make an example of them — in a good way.
Nominations are now being accepted for the annual Outstanding Environmental Volunteer and the 2014 Senior Citizen of the Year. The deadline for submitting a nomination is the end of this month.
The 17th Annual County Executive’s Outstanding Environmental Volunteer Award recognizes environmental volunteers who care for our parks, champion our watershed programs, encourage recycling, and enhance and beautify our environment. The Rockland County Division of Environmental Resources will consider Rockland residents who are 18 years or older. Rockland County Executive Ed Day will honor this year’s winner at a tree planting ceremony at Kennedy Dells Park at 11a on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.
