The Silver Stars Celebration is one of Tallahassee’s premier senior recognition events, honoring a select group of people for their special contributions.  The Tallahassee Senior Center, which spearheads the event, invites you community to nominate Silver Stars.  Capital Health Plan is proud to be a major sponsor for the 2012 celebration which culminates in a festive awards dinner at the FSU University Center on May 10, 2012.

We bet you know some: those shining women and men who reach age 60 and just keep bringing more brightness into the world.  Who can be a star?  Your friends, neighbors, relatives who…

  • Since age 60 have accomplished outstanding achievements
  • Demonstrated exemplary service to others and our community
  • Are inspiring models of active aging

From athletes to caregivers, Silver Stars illuminate many paths in life.  Past honorees include athletes, executive directors, community advocates, caregivers, volunteers, and entrepreneurs.  If you know someone 60 or older whose life of service you admire, whatever the arena, share your appreciation.  Nominate a senior star and let the whole community know.

Nominations are sought from the community and must be received by February 1. Send a nomination form or a letter of nomination - not to exceed 100 words - to: Silver Stars Nomination, Tallahassee Senior Center, 1400 N. Monroe St., Tallahassee, Florida, 32303. Be sure to describe the individual's outstanding achievements or contributions since reaching age 60. Include the nominee's and nominator's contact names and information, and be sure to get permission from the nominee. Forms can be downloaded here.
