Lucas County senior residents to be recognize for community efforts

Richard P. and Frances H. Anderson to be honored in Columbus

Two Maumee residents will be honored in Columbus for contributions to their community.

The Ohio Department of Aging, the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging and members of the Ohio General Assembly will induct Richard P. and Frances H. Anderson as well as ten other outstanding older Ohioans into the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.

The festivities take place during a special ceremony on Thursday, May 31 at the Statehouse Atrium in Columbus.

For better than 70 years the Andersons have demonstrated exemplary spirit and commitment to civic engagement in the Toledo community.

In addition to supporting the economy with a multibillion-dollar company headquartered in Northwest Ohio, the couple also volunteers and advocates for many local organizations and projects.

The Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame was established in 1977 to honor Ohioans age 60 and older for achievements and contributions to others, the roles they play in their communities and how each promotes productive and enjoyable lives.

The Andersons’ addition brings the total number of hall of fame members to 474.
