A SPRYE board member is headed to the Westchester County Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.

Dan O’Day, chair of SPRYE’s executive committee, will be one of 51 seniors from across the County recognized at the 40th Annual Senior Citizens Hall of Fame Awards Virtual Celebration on Friday, December 2nd at 11:30am. SPRYE is a local membership organization that produces programming and advocates for those 55 plus.

“Dan’s knowledge of the community and its citizens is so vital as SPRYE provides services to help them remain connected and comfortable in their homes,” said the group’s Executive Director Marie Johnson.

“I am honored to recognize this year’s group of seniors and induct them into our Westchester County Senior Citizens Hall of Fame,” said Rye guy and Westchester County Executive George Latimer. “The Senior Citizens Hall of Fame is our way to honor our seniors for giving their time, energy, and talents to enhancing the quality of life throughout Westchester.”

The 40th Annual Senior Citizens Hall of Fame Awards Celebration will be held virtually and streamed from the Westchester Public Private Partnership for Aging Services website. The program is hosted by the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services (DSPS), Westchester Parks, Recreation, and Conservation, and the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services.

Over the past 40 years, almost 1,300 seniors have been inducted. To be nominated, seniors must have made significant and enduring contributions to enhance Westchester’s quality of life through their professional work, volunteer achievements, or both.
