Wall of Fame nom­i­na­tions wanted

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

The chair of the Glace Bay Wall of Fame is invit­ing the pub­lic to take the time to rec­og­nize those who are de­serv­ing in Glace Bay and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

“There are a lot of good peo­ple and teams out there and this is a chance to rec­og­nize them,” he said. “We want to rec­og­nize the best in the com­mu­nity.”

The Glace Bay Hall of Fame was es­tab­lished 17 years ago and in 2015 was re­named the Glace Bay Wall of Fame.

The Glace Bay Wall of Fame an­nu­ally rec­og­nizes a vol­un­teer, team, ath­lete and com­mu­nity builder from Glace Bay and the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties of Port Morien, Donkin, Birch Grove, Tower Road, Re­serve Mines, Do­min­ion and Bridge­port.

Bon­nar said ap­prox­i­mately 10 nom­i­na­tions have been re­ceived to date.

Ap­pli­ca­tions can be picked up at the Bay­plex but are to be dropped off at the of­fice of Glace Bay MLA Geoff MacLel­lan at the Peo­ples Mall on Com­mer­cial Street in Glace Bay.

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is March 1.

Bon­nar said there will also be a com­mu­nity im­pact award handed out but the re­cip­i­ent will be cho­sen by the com­mit­tee. He said this award is to rec­og­nize a com­mu­nity leader or some­one who has a solid im­pact on the com­mu­nity.

“Some­one who makes a real dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity or who leads the com­mu­nity by ex­am­ple.”

Those se­lected will be rec­og­nized dur­ing a spe­cial event at the Bay­plex on April 2 at 7 p.m.

Each of the in­ductees will be pre­sented with a por­trait which will be placed on the Wall of Fame lo­cated along the walk­ing track at the Bay­plex.
