Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, COAAA, Asks, “Do You Know a Dynamic and Dedicated Senior?”

The Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, COAAA, is currently seeking nominees for their Central Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame. The next induction ceremony and reception will be held on Wednesday, May 18, in Columbus. Inductees receive a lapel pin, a framed portrait from a professional photographer, and a personal recognition on stage from county commissioners, followed by a catered reception with family and friends.

We have nominated or helped nominate three people from Madison County for the Hall of Fame: Paul Carpenter, our former delivery driver and good friend (2001); Richard “The Captain” Murray, Christmas decorator extraordinaire and husband to Ann, who has worked for the drugstore almost from the beginning (2005); and Mary Mitchell, a lady who can do just about anything she sets her mind to (2008). Mary is featured in the above photo, seated second from the left.

If you know someone who is over the age of 60 and has made significant contributions to their community, COAAA wants to know about them. Any individual or organization may nominate a resident of Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, or Union County. The person must be 60 years of age or older and a legal resident of Ohio for the past five years. A married couple can also be nominated if they are both equally involved in the same activities and both meet the eligibility requirements.

You can request a nomination form by contacting Bonnie Ackerman, Hall of Fame Coordinator for COAAA, at 614-645-6149 or 1-800-589-7277. ¬†You can also download an application from the COAAA’s web site HERE.
