Senior Hall of Fame


The annual Senior Hall of Fame awards ceremony preserves and fosters an appreciation for senior volunteers by honoring a select group of volunteers, 62 years of age or older, in the city of St. Petersburg for their significant contributions toward enriching the quality of life for others.
Those chosen for induction are role models for leading meaningful, vibrant lives, and their compelling stories demonstrate their commitments to causes, organizations and to our community at large.
