Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee seeks nominations

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee is currently seeking nominations for the 2018 Pawtucket Hall of Fame.

This annual signature event is a celebration to recognize those individuals whose efforts – in any line of endeavor – have made a lasting impact and highlighted the heritage of the citizens of the city of Pawtucket. Those receiving this award will be officially inducted into the Pawtucket Hall of Fame at an awards ceremony that will take place in October. Deadline for nominations and all letters of support is Friday, July 20.

Nominees need not be born in, or native to, Pawtucket, but must have had some significant impact on the city as a whole. This award is given to those selected nominees who have gone “above and beyond” in their community service activities, or who have been vehicles that shine a positive light on the city through their contributions or life accomplishments on a local, state or national level.

A person is eligible for election to the City of Pawtucket Hall of Fame if that person meets any or all of the following criteria: Born in the city of Pawtucket or whose reputation was made while a resident of Pawtucket or who made Pawtucket the home of their business and who has made a lasting impact on the quality of life of the citizens of Pawtucket.

To nominate a person to the Pawtucket Hall of Fame, send a letter of nomination to the chairperson listing 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 the nomination.

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. The deadline for nomination and all support letters and materials is Friday, July 20.
