    County of Los Angeles Honors Nadia Sutton During Older Americans Recognition Day

    West Hollywood Senior Advisory Board member and president of PAWS LA, Nadia Sutton, was honored by the County of Los Angeles during the 58th Annual Older Americans Recognition Day on May 25, 2023. The ceremony was virtual via ZOOM.

    The month of May is Older Americans Month. Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM). The theme this year is Aging Unbound, which offers an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and discuss how communities can combat stigma and stereotypes.

    The certificate of recognition signed by Los Angeles County Supervisor, Third District, Lindsey Horvath, reads as follows:

    “In recognition of outstanding volunteer service rendered to the community by sharing your ability, mature knowledge and vast experience, and giving freely of your time and energy. The wealthy heritage of your service enriches the entire community.”

    “I feel fabulous and wonderful and it’s nothing super important, but I love it because I love the people who are giving it to me,” Nadia Sutton told WEHO TIMES. “I think it’s important for us as older adults to celebrate ourselves and not stand on the side and I think it’s important to empower ourselves on the West Hollywood Senior Advisory Board, which I think should be renamed The Older Adults West Hollywood Board. We encourage older people to find their power because we are powerful and still have a lot to fight for, so I’m delighted to be here. I feel more vibrant and alive because when times go bad, we use our experience from our past to live in the present. I feel wonderful.”

    Nadia added that she was especially honored because LA County recognized here work in the City of West Hollywood, a city she says she absolutely adores. “I love to serve the City of West Hollywood, because it is a shining example of what it’s like to give older adults the ability to live independently with programs like Aging in Place where we get to live on our own and they support us in everything, whether its transportation, or food, rental assistance, all the programs that make us easy for us to live in our homes and live powerful lives.”
