Time again for Lake Placid Hall of Fame nominations

April 23, 2015
Editorial , Lake Placid News

More than 120 individuals, plus the 1948 U.S. Olympic four-man bobsled team and the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, have been added to the Lake Placid Hall of Fame since it was created in 1983, and it's time to choose the Class of 2015.

First, however, the Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee needs nominations.

The best thing to do, if you're going to nominate someone, is to visit the Hall of Fame and see who has been inducted. Either visit the Hall of Fame at the Lake Placid Conference Center/Olympic Center or read the plaques online at For example, Butch Martin, Robert Murch and Peter Roland Sr. were inducted last year.

If your potential nominee is not in the Hall of Fame, read the qualifications.

To be considered, 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 their endeavors must have enhanced the historical heritage of the area.

In addition to their sports accomplishments, athletes must also have made meaningful contributions to society, improving the quality of life or the fellowship of man in the Olympic Region - defined as Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties.

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 list of accomplishments relative to the purpose of the Hall of Fame.

Send your nominations by June 1 to Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee, c/o Alison Haas, 2634 Main St., Lake Placid, NY 12946.

The induction banquet will be held in the fall.
