The town of Cutler Bay collected some more hardware recently, snatching up the 2015 quality senior living for service to seniors by an organization award.

Cutler Bay, which has an estimated population of 45,000, joined Florida’s Communities for a Lifetime (CFAL) Initiative and formed a volunteer board, consisting of five local members and a town council member. The town also invested about $15,000 in 2013 for a senior needs assessment, finding that the senior population is the fastest-growing population in the town.

The town has been commended by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and was chosen by the Florida Power & Light awards program, which is celebrating its 34th year. The town received the award in Orlando at the 2015 Florida Conference on Aging. The program is designed to recognize professionals and volunteers who significantly impact the lives of Florida seniors.
