Nominations being sought for Brown County Outstanding Seniors

NEW ULM — Nominations are now being accepted until June 20 for the Brown County Outstanding Senior Citizen recognition for 2018.

Seniors who have reached the age of 70 by June 1, 2018 can be nominated. Recognition will be based largely on how the nominee has touched the lives of other people in their community, the scope of volunteer involvement in various community organizations, as well as the variety, quality and quantity of community service performed after the age of 65. Nominees must currently do a volunteer activity that is unpaid and demonstrates commitment to their local community.

Nominees will be recognized for their community involvement at the Brown County Fair in August. Both a man and woman can be selected to represent Brown County on Senior Day at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair.

Those wishing to make nominations can obtain the official nomination forms by contacting the Brown County Fair representative at 507-276-4882, or emailing info@browncountyfreefair.com.
