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.
We offer fitness classes and health and wellness programs at recreational centers throughout the city. The Healthy St. Pete Division is just one way we are engaging and empowering the community to eat, play, shop and live healthier.
