Hackettstown Senior Hall of Fame Seeks New Members

Do you know a senior who has done great things for the community? If so, the Hackettstown-Area Senior Hall of Fame committee wants to hear from you!

The community’s input is key to the selection committee. If you know someone over the age of 60 who has made an impact on individuals, communities or organizations in the area they could be the perfect Hall of Fame nominee. 

Nominations can be submitted beginning Jan. 1, through March 17, for the Hackettstown-Area Senior Hall of Fame Class of 2023. A recognition luncheon is scheduled for Wednesday May 10 at David’s Country Inn in Hackettstown.

The Senior Hall is hosted by the House of the Good Shepherd Retirement Community in Hackettstown. 

Last year’s inductees included Octavia Brown, Bob Moore, Annette Munley, Ethel Conry, Kelly Simonetti, Ernie Maso, Steve Somers, Barbara Morgan, George Paffendorf, Robert Jones, and Ray Nisivoccia.

Individuals who are 60 years of age and older as of Jan. 1, 2023, are eligible to be nominated. When nominating someone for the Hall supporting information should include how the person has made a difference and which community organization or individuals have benefitted from the senior’s specific effort, including volunteerism. The full criteria details are outlined in the nomination form which can be found online at www.hotgs.org/events

“There are many deserving people in the area,” said Sue Lanza, CEO of The House. “If you know someone who you think fits the criteria of a Hall of Famer make sure you nominate them!”

From the start, honorees have been recognized for the impacts that they have done to help others. Since its inception, the Hall has inducted over 260 people.
