It's that time of year again to nominate people for the Lake Placid Hall of Fame, which is located at the Lake Placid Conference Center/Olympic Center.

In 2018, three people were inducted into the Hall of Fame: Olympic biathlete and musician Lowell Bailey, Lake Placid librarian Linda Blair and former Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Luke Patnode.

This week, we received notice that the Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee is seeking recommendations from Olympic region residents for the Hall of Fame's Class of 2019. Deadline for submission is Monday, June 3, and the annual induction banquet will take place in the fall.

The Lake Placid Hall of Fame began in 1983 and has inducted more than 100 individuals, as well as the members of the 1948 U.S. Olympic four-man bobsled team and the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team. Plaques commemorate each member.

To be considered for Hall of Fame induction, individuals must be current or past residents of the Olympic region (defined as Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties in New York state) or have a significant connection to the area. Nominees must have made significant sports, cultural or civic contributions to the region, or their endeavors must have enhanced the quality of life, fellowship of man or historical heritage of the area.

The selection committee maintains a list of previous nominees. Nominations will only be considered if they are accompanied by a list of accomplishments relative to the purpose of the Hall of Fame.

Send nominations to: Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee, c/o Alison Haas, 2634 Main St., Lake Placid, NY 12946.
