Honoring Our Elders

Pop and JanetHere’s a daughter-father present you may not have thought of. Janet Riehl’s father turns 95 this November. To honor him she’s created an annual Second Mile Award. The holder of the 2010 award receives a $500 honorarium, a certificate, and publication on Riehlife of the nomination essay.

The deadline for nomination essays is November 9, 2010. The Second Mile Award  honors Elders 75 years and older whose dignity, character, creativity, and connection to community have quietly contributed to the world around them.
