Super Seniors We Admire!

May 19, 2016



Older adults have made—and continue to make—a profound contribution to nonprofit organizations nationwide. Whether it’s volunteering behind the scenes with clerical work, greeting the public with a smile, inspiring young minds, interacting with community member or helping those most in need—each day they play a pivotal role in the overall success of our communities. 


We can all think of an older adult who has made a difference in our lives. They are our neighbors, co-workers, and loved ones. They are volunteers, role models and mentors. They contribute selflessly, positively impacting families, communities and workplaces.

Each year, North Shore Senior Center honors those older adults and their volunteer services at our annual Super Senior Day celebration. On Thursday, May 26, over 30 volunteers from organizations throughout the northern suburbs of Chicago will be recognized and celebrate at a luncheon and awards ceremony in their honor.

Below is a list of this year’s Super Seniors and the organizations they serve. We invite you to join North Shore Senior Center in congratulating these Super Seniors and show appreciation for their contributions and continued enrichment and strengthening of our communities.
