The State Department of Aging has issued a call for nominations for outstanding older individuals to be inducted into the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.

The hall honors Ohioans age 60 and older for their extraordinary achievements and contributions. Individuals and organizations interested in nominating a neighbor, colleague, family member or friend may do so online at The department will accept nominations through Aug. 15. Honorees will be inducted to the Hall of Fame in the spring of 2010.

“Members of the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame have made a difference in the lives of those around them,” said Barbara E. Riley, director of the department. “They are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They have shaped communities, influenced industry, helped the arts flourish and so much more. We know most Ohioans know of at least one person who deserves this honor, and we hope they will take the time to nominate him or her.”
