XENIA — The Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame is currently seeking nominations. Members of the community are encouraged to submit nominations for outstanding women who deserve recognition in their home county. Nominations are being accepted now through June 30. This year’s Recognition Day luncheon will be held Saturday, Sept. 27 at Walnut Grove Country Club.
The Greene County Women’s Recognition Day and Hall of Fame was organized in March 1981 to annually honor women of Greene County, living or deceased, who have contributed to the county’s betterment, improved livability, and progress. Achievement for recognition may be in the arts, humanities, business, industry, agriculture, health, government, politics, sports, education, homemaking, the media, volunteer activities, distinguished personal achievements or any other specific areas.
Nominees must be either native-born Greene Countians or currently residing in the county with at least a 10-year residency. The organization is composed entirely of volunteers whose efforts are focused on bringing recognition to deserving women and is endorsed by the Greene County Commissioners.
Nominations may be made by an individual or an organization by completing the nomination form and returning it to Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame, PO Box 703, Fairborn, OH 45324 along with a $5 fee. All nominations must be received on or before June 30, in order to meet judging deadlines.
