The Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations of full or part-time residents of the Olympic region (Essex, Clinton and Franklin Counties) for 2012. The Lake Placid Hall of Fame began in 1983 and has inducted over 100 individuals including members of the 1948 U.S. Olympic four-man bobsled team and the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team. Permanent plaques commemorating each member are on display in the Olympic Center’s Hall of Fame.
To be considered for membership, individuals should be past or current residents of the Olympic region or have some significant connection to the area. All nominees must have made significant sports, cultural, or civic contributions to the region, or have enhanced Olympic region heritage.Deadline for submission is June 15; the annual induction banquet is held in the fall. The selection committee currently maintains a list of candidates who have been nominated in previous years. Nominations can only be considered if they are accompanied by a biography and a list of accomplishments relative to the purpose of the Hall of Fame.
Send nominations: Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee, c/o Alison Haas, 2634 Main Street, Lake Placid, NY, 12946.
