The Network in Aging strives to recognize individuals and organizations throughout Western New York whose work has benefited elders and their families. We present several different awards throughout the year. Members may nominate individuals and organizations for these awards. See the links on the left for the most recent recipients of these awards.
The “Dr. Evan Calkins Award for Meritorious Service” is designated to honor a person who has made a significant contribution to the field of aging in Western New York.
The “Program Award of Excellence” has been established to showcase a program that has been successfully implemented to enhance the Western New York geriatric citizenry.
The “Jerry Flaschner Humanitarian Spirit Award” was established in 2006 in honor of the late Jerry Flaschner and is designed to recognize an individual who has demonstrated the same concern for elders in the Western New York Community as exemplified by Jerry and his "no problem" attitude. Jerry was a member of the Network in Aging board of directors, the publisher of "Living Prime Time" and an active volunteer for many important causes. The nominee should share Jerry's belief that "The Best is Yet to Come," and translate that belief into action.
The purpose of this award is to recognize individuals who best exemplify the mission of the Network in Aging of WNY, Inc. Each nominee should have a demonstrated commitment to promoting respect and improving the quality of life for the Elders of Western New York consistent with the ideals of Jerry Flaschner.
