Governor and DHHS Commissioner Honor Senior Volunteers with Vaughan Awards

Concord, NH – New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas will join with Governor John Lynch on Thursday, May 14, to present the Joseph D. Vaughan Awards to senior volunteers. An individual or couple from each county in New Hampshire will receive the Joseph D. Vaughan Award. DHHS’ Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services (BEAS) along with the State Committee on Aging (SCOA) annually honor New Hampshire seniors with this award. This award was initiated in 1962 to memorialize the Honorable Joseph D. Vaughan, who was instrumental in creating a State agency dedicated to the well being of senior citizens.


The awards recognize people age 60 and older for their outstanding volunteer efforts on behalf of New Hampshire’s senior population. The Vaughan Award presentation will begin at 1 PM in the Governor and Council Chambers at the State House in Concord.
