For five years, Senior Services has partnered with the Winston-Salem Journal to plan and host the 7 over Seventy awards recognizing 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.
