The Willamette Heritage Center seeks nominations for its Annual Heritage Awards, to be held on April 1, 2016. The Heritage Awards recognize and honor our community’s leaders and organizations who have contributed significantly to our heritage. In addition to these honors, the night includes socializing, dinner, and a special program for the enjoyment and enlightenment of history enthusiasts and all lovers of the past and the stories we tell about it. This year, our program focuses on stories, memory, and oral history projects. The program features the first public presentation of an exclusive oral history of the legendary Gerry Frank, a fourth-generation native Oregonian with deep roots in the retail, restaurant, political, civic and business of the state.
