Submit your nominations for 2013 ‘Living Treasures’

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — London Downtown is again seeking nominations for its Living Treasures project.

In its third year, London’s Living Treasures records the life stories of four elders of the community who have a life history of inspiring others around them.

A Living Treasure is a person who is 70 years of age or older, is respected and exudes strong character and morals.

Four individuals will be chosen by an advisory council of well-connected Laurel Countians and they will announce the 2013 Living Treasures on March 27.  Once chosen, the four participants will be asked to record their stories, which will then be sent to the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress to be preserved.  Each of the stories will also be transcribed and published in The Sentinel-Echo starting on April 10.

To nominate individuals for the Living Treasures project, submit a letter of recommendation to London Downtown, 501 S. Main St., London, Ky. 40741.

In your letter, please include your relationship with the person nominated and examples of the person’s personal challenges or inspiring acts. You should encourage others who can attest to this person’s outstanding character to write a nomination letter, too.  

There is no form or template.  Letters can be handwritten or type-written.  Nominations will be accepted until February 22.  

For more information, call Dianna Milam at 606-416-1898.
