Legends Annual Program

Those who are chosen as a legend will be honored at awards ceremony.
A close friend or family member if available will be asked to present a oral casual presentation of that legend. Legends will be presented a plaque. The ceremony will be recorded for everyone to enjoy.

In addition to continuing to preserve the history and keep it current for today the awards ceremony is our primary fund-raiser for the year. We appreciate all who can attend.

If you have someone from the past or living who meet the criteria of a Port Norris Legend, download the form and let us know. Each May the members of the Port Norris Historical Society, review and nominate and vote for the next years legends.
