Nominations for Senior of the Week open

Seniors are an important part of the community who are often not recognized as much as they should be.  Do you know a senior who uses their retirement time to volunteer or help others? A “Senior of the Week” will be highlighted on Sundays on the Senior Living page in The Newnan Times-Herald. To nominate someone you think is worthy of the honor, email kandice@newnan.com with the nominee’s name, why they should be the Senior of the Week, and a photo.
