The WHC is proud to host its Annual Heritage Awards ceremony recognizing and honoring our community’s leaders and organizations who have contributed significantly to the preservation and interpretation of our heritage. This year, the Heritage Awards will be presented at our annual Fall Gala on Saturday, October 13th. Tickets for the event are available now. Click here to learn more.
This year’s program, This is Our Life, explores the heritage of individuals from the Mid-Valley, uncovering the mysteries behind their family trees, and what brought their ancestors to the region. This is the 26th year of the awards, and we’re thrilled to announce the addition of a fifth category, the Heritage Center Service Award, which will recognize the dedication of an individual to the Willamette Heritage Center’s mission.
Nominations for each of the five categories are open now, and will close on Monday, July 16th, 2018. Nominations can be submitted using the form below, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to 1313 Mill St. SE, Salem, OR 97301, addressed to James K. Phelps.
