The Seniors Foundation hosted its seventh Keystone Award Luncheon May 17 at the Country Club of Lincoln to honor those who have provided a lasting legacy to enhance the quality of life for older adults in Lincoln and Lancaster County.
The Keystone Award, which recognizes volunteer service to seniors in the community, was presented to Coleen Seng, who served four years as the city’s mayor (2003-2007), 16 years as the northeast Lincoln representative on the Lincoln City Council (1987-2003) and 26 years (1971-199) as director of community ministries for First United Methodist Church.
Delores Lintel, who passed away in February, was a former Seniors Foundation board member and longtime community activist. Her children, Theresa Barry and Tom Lintel, accepted the Seniors Foundation Remembers Award in her honor.
Master of ceremonies was Mark Feit of Community Health Charities, and the keynote speaker was Alice Dittman, past president and chairman emeritus for Cornhusker Bank.
The 2018 event was attended by 192 supporters and raised more than $14,000 to provide for special projects for Aging Partners.
Sponsors made the event possible. The 2018 Keystone Partners were Immanuel and Rembolt Ludtke. Keystone supporters were Bridge to Better Living, Cornhusker Bank, CountryHouse Residence, Eastmont Towers Community, Interim HealthCare, Lancaster Rehabilitation Center and Legacy Retirement.
