STAMFORD, Conn. -- SilverSource – an advocacy group for the needs of older adults and their families– is accepting nominations for the first annual SilverSource Awards.
The awards celebrate the advancements and contributions made in improving the lives of adults over age 60 throughout Fairfield County by volunteers, individuals, businesses and organizations.
“We know that there are significant advancements taking place throughout our region to address the needs of older adults and contribute to their quality of life.

The SilverSource Awards will recognize these advancements in two areas:

- The SilverSource Contribution to Community Award will recognize one individual and one organization or business that provides significant improvements to the community as a place to live and retire.
