Broward Senior Hall of Fame

Please join the Area Agency on Aging of Broward County (AAABC) as we continue to honor the tradition of recognizing outstanding Broward senior volunteers, age 60 or older, and their contributions to the community. We are proud to announce this year's inductees.

Awardees

The Awardees will be honored at the 37th Annual Dr. Nan S. Hutchison Broward Senior Hall of Fame Virtual Luncheon on Thursday, May 20th, 2021. Their names will be etched on a plaque that is displayed in the Broward County Government Building.
