The Barrow County Senior Center is hosting an event Thursday night in Winder to recognize the contributions of older Americans in this community.
Held in conjunction with Older Americans Month, the center will pay tribute to three local leaders who have devoted much of their lives to helping Winder and Barrow County. The honorees will include Barrow County commissioner and high school coach Isaiah Berry, former Winder mayor Buddy Ouzts and retired physician, Dr. C.B. Skelton.
Also recognized at the May 23 event will be seniors who continue to help the community by volunteering with various organizations. The event will be from 7-9 p.m. in the Colleen O. Williams Theater of the Winder Cultural Arts Center. The public is invited.
