The mission of Second Wind is to identify those outstanding volunteers who contribute so much to the quality of life in our community, and to provide recognition of retirees sixty years and over who have had a useful and productive life continuing beyond retirement, while others paused to rest. They caught a ‘second wind’ and began a new career of service to the community and to mankind.

Second Wind Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) organization and welcomes nominations for induction.  Request for nomination forms may be sent to carolbrowning72@gmail.com.
