Legends of Port Norris

In 2008, the Port Norris Historical Society began a yearly tradition of honoring those who have made a significant impact on our community. Honorees come from three categories: 19th Century, 20th Century, and Living Legends. Be they business owners, community leaders, or simply great citizens, they represent what is great about Port Norris.

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.
