7 over Seventy Awards

We are thrilled to be a part of honoring older adults who have made a great impact on our community!

Senior Services is proud to continue to partner with the Winston-Salem Journal to plan and host the annual 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.
