Marion Elliott, Dino Curial and Jack Snyder — three men who have served on the Manteca Hall of Fame committee since its inception 22 years ago — accepted recognition from the Manteca City Council Tuesday for their organization’s efforts.

Snyder noted those installed into the Hall of Fame over the years “are the heart and soul of this community” that provided “the backbone for Manteca.”

The annual dinner and installation is this Saturday at the Manteca Senior Center. Being inducted as part of the Class of 2014 are Jeff Liotard, community service; John Holbrook, government; Dr. Stephen Lin, health care; Steve Winter, education; and Manteca’s “Golden Girls” — Evelyn Allen, Betty Bergthold, Kathryn Lauriston, and Selma Wrigglesworth, at-large.

If you were unable to secure tickets for the dinner you can still congratulate the inductees and even meet those already a part of the Manteca Hall of Fame. 

The Manteca Historical Society is hosting a reception Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. for the Hall of Fame inductees at the museum, 600 West Yosemite Avenue.

And if you can’t make it Sunday, you can drop by the Manteca Transit Station and take a look at the photos of the more than 150 inductees honored since 1993.

The Hall of Fame was launched by the Manteca Boys & Girls Club to provide examples of what youth in Manteca, Lathrop, and French Camp can strive to obtain as well as to thank the community for its continuing support of youth through the club.
