2017 OHA Medal Breakfast Honoring OHA Curator of History Dennis Connors and Journalist, Author, & Public Speaker Sean Kirst

May 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am


The 2017 OHA Medal will be awarded to OHA’s Curator of History Dennis Connors and Journalist, Author, and Public Speaker Sean Kirst to recognize their outstanding and meritorious service to local history, and to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Onondaga County. This year’s event will take place at the Persian Terrace in the beautifully restored Marriott Syracuse Downtown (formerly the Hotel Syracuse) on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM.

The OHA Medal is the highest honor that this organization can bestow upon an individual for contributions made to the cause of preserving and interpreting our heritage.  Since OHA is also the largest and longest standing institution in this community devoted to conserving and presenting our history, one might also consider this medal the highest tribute that can be awarded on behalf of the entire Onondaga County community to those that ensure history remains a vital part of our future.

Tickets for this event are $50 per person or $400 for a table of 10 and can now be purchased over the phone by calling 315-428-1864 x315. Only 10 tickets remain. 

Sponsorships are also available. For more information, call Jon Zella at 315-428-1864 x. 315 or connect with him via email (jon.zella@cnyhistory.org).
