AARP seeks nominees for service award
CHICAGO — AARP is now accepting nominations for its 2013 Illinois Andrus Award for Community Service honoring 50-plus Illinoisans who share their experience, talent and skills to enrich the lives of their community members. Named for the Association’s founder, it is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award.
“AARP has a strong commitment to volunteer service that is traced back to our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus,” said Merri Dee, AARP Illinois state president. “The Andrus Award recognizes those individuals who tirelessly give of themselves in ways that significantly enrich the lives of others and their communities.”
AARP selects one Andrus Award volunteer per state (or couple performing service together). Nominees do not need to be an AARP member nor do they need to have performed AARP volunteer work in order to receive the award. Nominations will be evaluated by the AARP Illinois Executive Council based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced in the fall.
