The town’s Council on Aging has named Paul Hogman as its Senior of the Year. Hogman, who moved to Billerica in 2006, was honored for his volunteer work on behalf of the council, which includes spearheading both a book club and the men’s club for local senior cititzens. For the past two years, Hogman also has been participating in the council’s intergenerational program, which pairs seniors with local teenagers, who ask questions about what life was like for past generations. Hogman is a history buff who gives talks each month, sharing his interest in the Colonial era and other periods in local history. He was one of five seniors recognized by the Council on Aging at a May 4 awards banquet, timed to take place during Older Americans Month. The five elders were honored for their service, character, vision, and passion for seniors and the community at large. The other award recipients were John T. Galvin, a founding father of Billerica Little League; Doris Pearson, who volunteers for many organizations, including the Boys & Girls Club and the Billerica Community Alliance; Michael Shaffer, who often puts his handyman skills to work for the town library; and James Spinale, who volunteers with numerous local groups, including the town’s Recreation Commission and the Yankee Doodle Homecoming Committee.
