Group seeks to honor top state senior volunteers

The search is on for New York’s “outstanding senior volunteer.”

The Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead Inc., seeks nominations for those age 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a week to volunteer for their favorite causes.

“Senior volunteerism not only benefits others but also helps seniors stay active and socially engaged in their communities – important elements of healthy aging,” said Lisa Wiedemann, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office in Buffalo.

Those interested in nominating or voting for a candidate may do so by March 1 at For more information, call 630-0657.
