Senior Neighbors will be hosting the first ever 16 Over 60 Awards Gala at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. With this new event, we will annually recognize the contributions and impact of 16 individuals 60 years of age or more who engage and inspire us every day.

Highlighting and recognizing Kent County seniors and the important role they play in our community continues to be a major goal for Senior Neighbors. We have countless older adults here in Kent County who positively impact our community every day. Whether it be through business excellence, caregiving, or other extraordinary efforts, this population is an important part of the fabric of our community.

We are pleased to announce the 16 honorees for the inaugural 16 Over 60 Awards Gala!

After receiving over 100 nominations from across Kent County, the following individuals were selected by a committee for their positive impact and engagement in the community, inspiration to others, and the unique qualities of their story. Each honoree exemplifies the positive contributions and impact being made in our community by those who are 60 years of age or more.


Through sponsorship, individual reservations, and event contributions, the 16 Over 60 Awards Gala will continue to provide support for Senior Neighbors and its variety of programs serving Kent County seniors living independently.
