VISTA — Nominations are now open for 2011 selections for the Vista Hall of Fame, which is sponsored by the Vista Historical Society.
In alternate years, nominees must have made significant contributions to the betterment of the community during their lifetimes and been deceased for at least 20 years (since 1991). Married couples who both meet the criteria can be nominated together as one nominee.
A maximum of two such nominees can be appointed to the Hall of Fame biannually. The deadline for nominations is April 1.
Those who are selected will be honored during a ceremony to be held at the Vista Historical Society annual meeting in June, and their photographs will be placed in the Historical Society Museum alongside those elected in former years. The date and place of the annual meeting will be announced.
The Vista Historical Society board of directors will appoint a committee of former Hall of Fame inductees and community representatives to review nominations received from the public.
Nominations can be made by calling the museum at (760) 630-0444, or by mail at P.O. Box 1032, Vista, CA 92085.
Details of the nominee’s service and other supportive information must be included for consideration.
