sr award winnerNew Day Senior Services Friendly Visitor volunteer Rosemarie Dentino was recently presented with the Central Illinois Agency on Aging’s “Because We Care” Senior Volunteer Award. Seniors Program Manager Ruth Urbanc and Volunteer Coordinator Sue Hirschman nominated Dentino for her dedication to selflessly serving seniors in Central Illinois throughout the past 35 years. The award is given to an individual 60 years and older residing within the 6-county services area of Fulton, Marshall, Peoria, Stark, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties, who exemplifies the human service philosophy of the Central IL Agency on agency, and has contributes to the senior community by giving their time and talent as a volunteer.

“We were proud to nominate Rosemarie for commitment to our program and her belief in fulfilling our mission,” says Urbanc. “She is an exemplary volunteer, who makes a big difference in the lives of the seniors she works with, because she cares,” added Urbanc. Dentino received her award at the Central IL Agency on Aging’s annual meeting and awards luncheon held in September.
