Two south county residents are among 20 “Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans” 75 years old and older who will be honored Sunday, Nov. 1, by St. Andrews Resources for Seniors.

Sunset Hills resident Bill Schicker, 75, operates numerous charities in St. Louis and remains active in the automotive business. Oakville resident Jack Strosnider, 84, is a tireless worker on behalf of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

“As this event heads into its seventh year, we are honored to recognize another outstanding group of ‘Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans,'” Mary Alice Ryan, president and CEO of St. Andrew’s Resources for Sen-iors, stated in a news release. “Each year we continue to find more and more individuals whose amazing accomplishments are redefining what it means to grow old, and we applaud them for demonstrating that age is truly nothing more than a number.”

The “Ageless-Remarkable St. Louisans” will be honored during a gala at the Chase Park Plaza’s Khorassan Ballroom, 212 N. Kingshighway Blvd. The evening begins at 6 p.m. and will include a cocktail hour for guests to mingle with honorees and visit an honoree photo gallery, a dinner and a video tribute to the guests of honor.

Tickets cost $150 each and proceeds benefit the St. Andrews Charitable Foundation.
