Senior Citizen Hall of Fame

About The Senior Citizen Hall Of Fame

Created in 1968, The Senior Citizen Hall of Fame was inaugurated by the Senior Citizens' Advisory Council of the Cincinnati Recreation Commission in cooperation with the City of Cincinnati and its Mayor. More than 1,500 seniors have been inducted into the Hall of Fame at the annual banquet hosting more than 800 attendees, including city officials and other dignitaries.

The Hall of Fame helps our community recognize the contributions and achievements of its senior citizens. Awards are presented to persons 60 and over. The nominees have been selected by their fellow members on the basis of significant and continuing contributions to the social and cultural life of the Cincinnati community.
