The 29th annual Maine Women’s Hall of Fame Celebration will be held Saturday, March 17, at the Randall Stewart Center, Fireplace Lounge, at the University of Maine at Augusta, 46 University Drive.

The silver tea and registration will be held from 1 to 2 p.m., followed by the induction ceremony.

The late Cornelia “Fly Rod” Crosby, who was the first Registered Maine Guide, will be honored. She helped pass legislation requiring hunting guides to register with the state. She was a sportswriter and presented at numerous sportsman’s shows in the northeast to promote outdoor sports in Maine. Also honored will be Julia Clukey, a USA Olympian in the luge who started a summer camp for girls in Maine, helping 610 girls. She has presented at 63 schools in Maine to girls about setting goals. She is a speaker for the National Women’s Sports Foundation. She was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame.

The celebration is open to the public.

The Maine Women’s Hall of Fame was established in 1990 by the Maine Federation of Business and Professional Women. The University of Maine has been a cosponsor, and has provided a site in the Bennett D. Katz library for the display of the photographs and citations. Each year’s ceremony is held in March, in observance of Women’s History Month.

The Hall of Fame is dedicated to women who have met these specific criteria: the woman’s achievements have had a statewide impact, the woman’s achievements significantly improved the lives of women in Maine, and the woman’s contribution has enduring value for women.

To honor the Inductees of the Maine Women’s Hall of Fame, contributions will go to the BPW/Maine Futurama Foundation scholarships for women.
