They’re at least 60 years of age. They’re high achievers who help others. They’re shining examples to young and old. They’re Silver Stars—annual honorees at a celebration created by the Tallahassee Senior Center and cosponsored by Capital Health Plan. Because of the event’s growing popularity, this year’s gala and dinner will be held at the FSU University Center.

First we need nominees! This is your chance to honor someone—friend, neighbor, or relative—who brings light to lives. Past Silver Stars have included athletes, executive directors, community advocates, caregivers, volunteers, and entrepreneurs. Think a few moments. You know someone. Please let us know, too.

Silver Star criteria: Eligible people are those who, since age 60, have accomplished outstanding achievements, demonstrate exemplary service to others and our community, and are inspiring models of active aging.

Nomination process: Write a description of up to 100 words about the person’s accomplishments since age 60. Mail it to Silver Stars Nomination, Tallahassee Senior Center, 1400 N. Monroe St., Tallahassee FL 32303.

Deadline: February 22, 2008.
