COAST Seeking Nominations for Every Moment Counts Awards
The St. Tammany Council on Aging (COAST) announces the second annual Every Moment Counts Awards.  
Nominations for Every Moment Counts will be accepted through Saturday, June 15, 2019
“We want to honor St. Tammany residents in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s who are active and making contributions to their communities,” said COAST Executive Director Julie Agan.
Nominations will be accepted in four age groups: 60-69, 70-79, 80-89 and 90 and older. Persons in these age groups will be recognized in three different community engagement categories: Business, Health and Wellness, and Volunteerism. 
Nominations in the Business category will include individuals still working on a regular basis. Persons who have retired from one career to start another successful career, or persons who still work five days a week at the company where they have been employed for the last 50 years are two examples.
Nominations in the Health and Wellness category will include individuals who are defying age and still running marathons, or working as a personal trainer, or leading their friends at the retirement community on a daily walk.
Nominations in the Volunteerism category will include those who are contributing their time, talent and or treasure to a charitable organization.
“We are hoping to identify winners in all categories and age ranges,” said Agan. “Winners will receive two free tickets to the anniversary gala and a lovely commemorative award.”
Nomination forms can be found on the News and Events page of the COAST website, www.coastseniors.org. Or mail the nominee’s information to COAST, P. O. Box 171, Covington, LA  70433. Please indicate “Every Moment Counts” on the envelope. Include name, address, phone number and birthdate of the nominee. Include your name and contact information. In 500 words or less, tell us why your nominee has earned an Every Moment Counts Award.
