The Home Instead Senior Care office serving seniors in Blairsville has announced the "Salute to Senior Service" program to honor senior volunteers for the tireless contributions they make to their local communities.

The program will include a search for the most outstanding senior volunteer in each state and culminate with the selection of a national "Salute to Senior Service" winner during Older Americans Month in May.

Nominees must be 65 years of age or older and volunteer at least 15 hours a month.

Nominations will be accepted at www.Saluteto through March 15. Nomination forms also can be requested by emailing ckoehler@home

Winners will receive plaques, and their stories will be posted on the Salute website. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s nonprofit charity of choice.
