Hall of Fame Committee seeking nominations

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations for the 2017 Pawtucket Hall of Fame. This annual event is a celebration to recognize individuals whose efforts have made a lasting impact on the quality of life of Pawtucket’s citizens and added to the heritage of the city.

A letter of nomination must be sent to the chairperson and list the nominee’s name and a statement why this person is being nominated. Additional letters from other individuals supporting the nomination are strongly encouraged.

When the committee is considering the nomination, the person who made the initial nomination will be invited to come before the committee to discuss it.

Letters of nomination should be mailed to: Patricia S. Zacks, Chair, Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee, Pawtucket City Hall, 137 Roosevelt Ave., Pawtucket, RI 02860.
