The charter members who founded the Indiana Gourd Society decided to show their
appreciation to those individuals who went above and beyond their volunteer
efforts for the society. This passion for the growing, crafting and promotion of
gourds is show in their efforts. Individuals who have clearly demonstrated this
work in any area of the gourd society may be nominated for the Roll of Honor.
All nominees must be current or past members of the society. Any current IGS
member may make a nomination. Nominations for the Roll of Honor are to be sent
to the secretary of IGS on an 8 ½ X 11” sheet of paper. The Executive Board will
review the nominations. If necessary, the Executive Board will appoint a
committee to narrow the number of nominees. If a committee is needed to reduce
the number of nominations, they will return to the Executive Board a smaller
list of nominees. The executive board will then select the honorees from the
smaller list. The Executive Board will have the final decision regarding how
many individuals there will be. Nominating instructions will appear in the
Tendril and on the IGS website.
Those found worthy by the Executive Board will then have their names engraved on
the Roll of Honor plaque and will be introduced at the dinner of the annual
Indiana Gourd Show.
Possible Nomination Instructions:
On a piece of 8 ½ sheet of paper write or type why you believe your nominee
should be added to the Roll of Honor. Please site specific activities this
individual was involved with.
Send your nomination to the Secretary of I.G.S. by February 1.
