AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN COMMUNITY SERVICE 2013
As you know, the Awards for Excellence in Community Service, presented by the Dallas
Historical Society, are among the most prestigious awards given in Dallas each year.
Because of your longtime involvement in activities that have made Dallas a better place
to live and your knowledge of the people who are making a difference to our community,
the Trustees of the Dallas Historical Society are pleased to invite you to join us in the
nomination process for the 2013 Awards for Excellence in Community Service.
Nominations are open in the following categories – Arts Leadership, Business,
Creative Arts, Education, Health/Sciences, Humanities/History, Philanthropy and
Volunteer Community Leadership. In addition, the Society may recognize an
individual, group or organization whose achievements extend into more than one of the
award categories with the Jubilee History Maker Award.
This is your opportunity to nominate an individual or organization whom you think is
deserving of an Award for Excellence. Click Here to download a nomination form. Please note that each nominee may have up to
three letters of nomination and three additional pages of biographical or other information
may be attached. The enclosed form and nomination letters must be received by the
Dallas Historical Society no later than Tuesday, March 26, 2013. Nominations remain
open in the Society’s files for three years and may be considered during that time period.
If you need additional forms or have any questions, please contact Nora Lenhart at

My Hometown and the DHS Facebook Community
"Every man's memory is his private literature." - Aldous Huxley
What do you remember about the Dallas neighborhood in which you grew up? We want to hear your story.
The Dallas Historical Society invites you to participate in our new project called "My Hometown". Our goal is to piece together a Dallas encyclopedia one ice cream stand at a time. Record your hometown memories in a 250 - 600 word essay and send to the Dallas Historical Society:
email: Dealey (subject heading "My Hometown"), or mail to:
Dallas Historical Society
P. O. Box 150038
Dallas, TX 75315-0038
Pending approval (our criteria are few), your essay will later be published on the web.
The Dallas Historical Society's website and message board has seen millions of clicks over the years. Now we are moving into the next generation of web services, a generation marked by user collaboration and sharing. Our first step in this direction is to build an online community through the social networking website www.Facebook.com.
Much like the popular web service known as MySpace, Facebook allows users to create a profile of themselves and interact in a number of fun ways. Facebook, however, is more exclusive than MySpace and allows for more personal privacy. The best way to learn more is to get on Facebook and join our community. It's easy. And once you are there, you can chat in the forums or participate in Historical Society projects, such as "My Hometown".
Ultimately, much of our activities on Facebook will be incorporated into a new Dallas Historical Website - a website built in part by its visitors, a website that allows virtual access to significant parts of DHS archives and museum collections. So let’s get started! Send us an email asking to join our online community and we’ll send you an invitation.
