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 who you think is worthy of the honor, email with the nominee’s name, why they should be the Senior of the Week, and a photo.

“Remembering When...” segment open for submissions

“Remembering when…” is a new segment that will be featured in the Senior Living section of the NTH Sunday edition. 

Cowetans and NTH readers can submit a story describing their “Remembering when….” moment. Each month will have a theme to help spark some of those memories we have all had with our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other role models.

The theme for August is “Back to School,” or any school memories.

There is no word limit, and photos are encouraged with submissions. Please identify those in the pictures if possible.

AARP driving course will be held Aug. 6

An AARP Smart Driver Course will be held Tuesday, Aug. 6, at the Carnegie Library in downtown Newnan from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. This course is open to all licensed drivers. There is a $20 fee for non-AARP members and a $15 fee for AARP members with valid membership cards. Members must bring their cards. Fees can be paid by cash, check or money order only, made payable to AARP. Bring your own lunch. Call Jesse Johnson at 678-485-0655 to register.
