DUNEDIN, Florida – The city of Dunedin, Florida, inducted Jack and Phyllis Greenfield, formerly of Morris, into its Senior Hall of Fame at a ceremony on May 14  in Dunedin.

The purpose of Dunedin’s Senior Hall of Fame is to honor and celebrate older Dunedin residents who have made significant contributions to their community, according to a news release. The award is made annually to two residents who have demonstrated the art of aging successfully and have donated significant time and abilities to activities serving the community. 

The Greenfields, who met and married in Morris, moved to Dunedin in 1970, and true to their families’ tradition of community service, Phyllis and Jack soon became involved in volunteering. They began long-term commitments to Dunedin High School, Dunedin Historical Museum, Dr. Hale’s Geriatric Research Program and Mease Dunedin Hospital.

To this day, Jack continues to serve as a skilled, compassionate volunteer to Suncoast Hospice. These award winners are shining examples of Dunedin seniors and continue to serve the Dunedin community, according to the release.
