JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Rep. Bryan Spencer is encouraging his constituents to help him recognize the efforts of outstanding senior citizens in the 63rd District. Spencer has until March 28 to submit nominations to Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe for the annual Senior Service Awards, and is asking area residents to help him spotlight seniors whose service and dedication to their communities has made a positive difference.
The Lieutenant Governor’s Senior Service Award was instituted in 2005 to promote and highlight the positive accomplishments Missouri’s senior citizens have made in their local communities. Hundreds of seniors have been honored so far with the award. This year, Lt. Gov. Kehoe is again honoring seniors from around the state. Kehoe will recognize each of the exceptional seniors at the annual Senior Service Award banquet at the Capitol in May.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to honor an outstanding senior citizen that you may know in our district,” said Spencer, R-Wentzville. “I encourage constituents to contact my office with recommendations for senior citizens whose service has made a positive difference in our community.”
Potential candidates should be at least 60 years of age and volunteer a minimum of 25 hours per year.
