Nominations being taken for 2012 Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame

It’s time to consider the third class of the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame.

Nominations are due April 1 for the event, which began in 2009 with the inaugural induction ceremony for Thomas Holme, the Disstons, Tom Gola, St. Katherine Drexel, Joan Krajewski, Aid for Friends and Harry Silcox.

Five new members were inducted in the 2010 ceremony at Holy Family University before the steering committee decided the event wouldn’t be an annual one.

The public is now invited to nominate people, past and present, “whose lives, accomplishments and contributions should make the Northeast proud.”

The 2012 induction ceremony will be held in October.
