The Hall of Carthage Heroes Oversight Committee is now accepting nominations for the Hall of Carthage Heroes Class of 2020. The Hall, located in the entry and main corridor of Fair Acres YMCA, honors Carthage heroes past and present. Made up of two divisions, the Hall recognizes Pioneers & Citizens of Distinction, as well as outstanding Athletes. All Carthage citizens inducted into the Hall have made a strong, positive impact on this city as it was born and grew, or contributed greatly to its reputation by the deeds they accomplished, and are worthy of emulation by today’s and succeeding generations.
