Lehigh County Honors Older Adults

Holds Unsung Heroes Tribute


In honor of Older Americans Month, Lehigh County Office of Aging and Adult Services will recognize 16 older adults who display exceptional generosity with their time and talents to enhance the lives of others.

The 16th annual “Tribute to Unsung Heroes” will take place on Wednesday, May 18 at 1 p.m. at Asbury United Methodist Church, 1533 Springhouse Road in Allentown.

Since 1963, May has been designated as a special month to honor older Americans.  

            Honorees include happy-go-lucky, 91-year-old WWII Veteran, Major Nathan Kline who retired with a tremendous record of 42 years of active and ready reserve time, and William and Evelyn Hart who delivered more than 21,000 meals for Meals on Wheels.

The Office of Aging and Adult Services advocates for Lehigh County residents and provides a wide range of services and information to help older adults remain healthy, active, independent and productive members of their community.
