The Department of Health and Human Services, along with Governor Chris Sununu, the State Committee on Aging, and EnGAGING New Hampshire, honored outstanding senior volunteers at the Joseph A. Vaughan Awards at the New Hampshire State House in Concord on May 6.

Vaughan Award Recipents with the Governor

Each May, during Older Americans Month, the awards are presented to one individual in each of the state’s ten counties in recognition of exemplary volunteer efforts on behalf of New Hampshire’s older adults. The event was established in 1962 in memory of the Honorable Joseph D. Vaughan, who was instrumental in creating a State agency dedicated to the well-being of senior citizens. From volunteering at senior centers, to delivering meals, to providing transportation to those who need it, this year’s award recipients have exemplified what it means to serve their fellow citizens. Members of the Vaughan family attended the event.
