Raleigh Hall of Fame Induction
On Thursday September 13 2007, Raleigh Little Theatre was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame. Here are photos from the evening.
There were 14 people and 2 organizations inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Initiated in 2005, the Raleigh Hall of Fame honors and recognizes citizens and organizations whose achievements have made a positive difference in the life of our great city.
The evening included remarks by the L. Merritt Jones, Chairman of the Raleigh Hall of Fame Board of Directors, and the Mayor of the City of Raleigh, Charles Meeker. The main portion of the evening was prerecorded presentations about each inductee and the receiving of medals. RLT's segment was a recording of Haskell Fitz-Simons speaking about the theatre's history and current activities, and Board President Gail Smith received the award from the mayor. The evening concluded with the Raleigh Song, sung by the composer Bill Leslie.
Upwards of 40 RLT volunteers and staff members (past and present) came to support the theatre.
