A request was made to the Town Council for start-up funds and they were approved at the November Town Council meeting. Darlene Bright is serving on the committee and Demetria Sapienza will be supervising their finances.
The Committee’s basic function will be to accept nominations and choose no more than five (5) citizens each year who have made a tangible and lasting contribution to the Town of Carolina Beach through their outstanding leadership and service, advancing the economic and social development of Carolina Beach as a residential community and beach resort.
The Committee will review nominations and confirm the information received with the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society to ensure that the information is historically accurate before ordering a monument.
The Committee will solicit and receive contributions and donations to provide for the making of the monuments and these funds shall be deposited with the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society for the benefit of the Citizen’s Recognition Program Walk of Fame.
The monument shall be light gray granite, weighing 165 pounds and measuring one foot by two feet and four inches thick. The monuments will be placed around the Carolina Beach Lake.
