It takes the legacy of many hands to build a community. Since 1945, the Onondaga Historical Association Medal Award has recognized distinguished contributions to the cause of preserving and interpreting Onondaga County history.
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 the only general comprehensive history organization in this community, one might also consider this medal the highest tribute that can be awarded on behalf of the entire Onondaga County community to those who ensure history remains a vital part of our future.
This year, 2021, we are hosting our 30th OHA Medal ceremony honoring Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation, The Dunbar Association, and Stickley Audi & Co.
This event will be a virtual ceremony. Tickets are $25 each. Ticket holders and sponsors will receive a link to view the ceremony video on 10:00 am, May 10th. This video will be available to view for 5 days until 11:59 pm, May 14th.
