Bellingham YWCA’s Northwest Women’s Hall of Fame Steering Committee is seeking nominations of Whatcom County women who have made outstanding contributions to their community. Deadline for nominations is Friday, Feb. 10.
The committee has inducted 50 women from various career and volunteer backgrounds into the hall of fame since 1999.
This year’s inductees will be honored at a 4:30 p.m. dinner on Sunday, March 18 in the Northwood Hall event facility, 3240 Northwest Ave. in Bellingham.
Potential nominees should have promoted opportunities for women and girls, and they should have had to overcome obstacles to fulfill their goals, according to a Jan. 9 YWCA news release. Nominees can be either living or deceased, but they need to be nominated by community members.
Nomination forms are available online at www.ywcabellingham.org/programs/nwwhalloffame.
