Third Age logo 2014Senior Services of Albany is pleased to announce the 21st annual “Third Age Achievement Awards” to recognize the contributions that area residents and professionals are making in our communities during the “Third Age” of their lives.  The awards recognize achievements after the age of 60 and aim to dispel the myth that getting older meansThird age awards 1 slowing down. As Isabel Allende said, “You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own

All nominees exemplify what it means to live well and age well. We accept nominations for extraordinary individuals who have contributed in the areas of Business, Health and Human Services, Medicine, Physical Fitness, Education, Volunteerism, Arts and Culture, Government, Philanthropy, and Law.
