NORTHWEST, NJ – Nominations for the 2023 Hackettstown Area Senior Hall of Fame are now being accepted.

The Hackettstown Area Senior Hall of Fame was established in 1997 to recognize senior citizens in the Northwest New Jersey region who have made a significant impact on the lives of others in the community.

The Senior Hall of Fame honorees are recognized during a celebration luncheon and ceremony in May, which is Older Americans Month. This year’s luncheon will be held on Wednesday, May 10 at David’s Country Inn in Hackettstown.
