SPRINGFIELD - Dave Tomlinson is receiving The Lieutenant Governor’s Senior Service Award for being an outstanding volunteer and making a difference in the lives of many individuals impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.

Over the last six years, Tomlinson has contributed more than 1,500 volunteer hours to the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter. Tomlinson is involved and active in many capacities. He is a member of the Board of Directors and acts as an Alzheimer’s advocate, volunteering in Jefferson City and Washington, D.C. He is also a facilitator for a men’s support group that meets the second Wednesday of each month, and he is also a Walk to End Alzheimer’s committee member.

“Dave is a passionate advocate and educator who has helped countless people navigate the Alzheimer's journey,” says Carroll Rodriguez, Vice President of Public Policy at the Alzheimer’s Association. The Senior Service Award is a wonderful honor for a truly wonderful man.”

The Alzheimer’s Association would like to congratulate Dave Tomlinson on receiving this prestigious award and thank him for his years of dedicated service and passion for a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
