Fifth Annual 7 over Seventy Awards

Help us honor older adults who have made a great impact on our community!

For the past four years, 7 over Seventy has recognized the contributions of older adults who have greatly impacted Forsyth County through their community service, civic and social engagement, and/or career accomplishments. Past honorees represent a wonderfully diverse swath of people who share one thing in common–a love for their community.

Do you know an older adult who has made a significant contribution to our community? There’s still time to nominate them for the fifth annual 7 over Seventy awards.  We’ve extended the nomination period to June 1.
