Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee seeks nominations

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations for the 2019 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 on Friday, Nov. 1, at the Pawtucket Armory Arts Center.

Deadline for nominations and all letters of support is July 19.

Nominees need not be native born 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 and/or whose contributions have served as a vehicle, by bringing positive local, state or national impact upon the city.

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

• Reputation was made while a resident of the city of Pawtucket

• Made the city of Pawtucket the home of their business and who has made a lasting impact on the quality of life of the citizens of the city of Pawtucket.

To nominate someone a letter of nomination must be sent to the chairperson listing the nominee’s name and a statement of 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.
