Senior Citizen Hall of Fame

 

Honored for a lifetime of service, personal achievement and a positive image of aging, one or two senior citizens are inducted to the Hilliard Senior Citizen Hall of Fame each year. Nominees may be living or deceased and should exemplify how senior citizens contribute to their communities and respond creatively to retirement.

Nomination forms are available online, at the Phyllis A. Ernst Senior Center, the Hilliard Community Center and the Hilliard Municipal Building. Completed forms must be returned to the Phyllis A. Ernst Senior Center on or before June 1.
