Video: Congratulations Honorees at Wesbury’s 9th Annual Senior Tribute


On Thursday, October 12th, Wesbury recognized the community service efforts of five individuals and one organization at the 9th Annual Senior Tribute Banquet and Auction. The event was held at the Iroquois Club in Conneaut Lake.

We all know people or groups who amaze us with their talent, generosity, and selflessness. They may be a friend, a neighbor, a relative, or someone from your workplace or church. Each year, Wesbury seeks to find these extraordinary individuals, aged 65 or over; or extraordinary groups or organizations with members of any age. The nominees are honored by allowing Wesbury to tell their story and applaud their contributions at the Annual Senior Tribute. The event is truly inspiring and not only spotlights these unsung heroes but also serves as a fundraiser for Wesbury’s benevolent care fund, which helps support Wesbury residents who have outlived their financial resources and require charitable care.
