Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community in Saratoga Springs, will recognize the area’s most senior family members by welcoming a new class of honorees to the Greatest Grandparents Club.

Families are welcome to nominate their grandparent or great-grandparent for recognition at Nominations should describe why their grandparent is the greatest in 200 words or less and include a photo to be displayed on the event website. The nomination deadline is Wednesday, September 7 at 4 p.m.

All honorees will be recognized on as a part of Wesley’s Sixth Annual Saratoga Grandparents Day celebration on Sunday, September 11th.  The event, which celebrates the importance of family in conjunction with National Grandparents’ Day, will highlight the honorees on the event website and social media, commemorating this exciting award!

In addition to the Greatest Grandparents Club, Wesley will honor all residents that reside within The Wesley Community with flowers, thanking them for their commitment not only to being grandparents and great-grandparents to their loved ones, but also their dedication and impact to the community at large. Many of the residents at The Wesley Community are veterans, teachers, nurses, police officers, spiritual leaders and homemakers and, as role models, have significant influence on the many generations that follow them.

“The Wesley Community is excited to honor the newest members of the Greatest Grandparents Club, as well as say thank you to our residents,” said The Wesley Community’s CEO J. Brian Nealon. “We look forward to honoring some of the greatest grandparents in our community on this important holiday that celebrates the members of our family who do so much and make a difference in our daily lives, as well as in the lives of all that they have touched.”

Nominations are free-of-charge to submit. Donations are being accepted online for The Wesley Foundation’s Nursing Scholarship Fund where all proceeds from the event will be directed. The Nursing Scholarship Fund helps Wesley employees pursue or continue their nursing education at an accredited school.
