Do you know someone who is aged 60 year and over who makes a difference in our community? Show them they have been noticed and nominate for this year’s Senior Citizen of the Year.

Moree Plains is looking for their next Senior Citizen of the Year, with nominations now open. As part of NSW Senior Week, the award recognises community members aged 60 and older who have made a special contribution(s) to our community.

Moree Plains Shire Council’s Community Development/Liaison Officer Jacqui Moore said the award is a great way to say thank you and to show a senior how much they are appreciated.

“Many of our older residents go above and beyond for others, enhancing our amazing communities through their tireless efforts. They may have volunteered their time for charity, made a difference in someone’s life or have been passionate about a cause that has made an impactful change.

If you know someone exceptional like this, please nominate them, so we can collectively celebrate their efforts,” said Ms Moore.

Nominations close at 5pm, Wednesday 6 March 2024 with the winner announced at the Seniors Week Luncheon, held at the Moree and District Services Club auditorium Wednesday 13 March 2024.

Please see the attachment for a copy of the nomination form. Alternatively, hard copies can be collected from the Moree Community Library, 36 Balo Street, Moree.
