May is Older Americans Appreciation Month, and Thursday local seniors were treated to a special day just for them.

The Bay County Council on Aging hosted an outdoor luncheon honoring local seniors complete with, food, door prizes, and awards.

Legislative Affairs Director for Florida's Elder Affairs Scott Read handed out special awards to volunteers who have gone above and beyond to support the council on aging in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.

Volunteer of the year went to 90-year-old Cecilia Trusler for her work with meals on wheels.

Trusler spends every Monday, come rain or shine, packing up meals and heading over the bridge into Panama City Beach to deliver to folks who are homebound.
