CLOSED – The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) remains closed to the public until such time as it is safe and practical to open while also adhering to the provincial Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. Museums are included as part of Phase Four, Part II of the Re-Open Plan. Assuming that Phase Four has been met, the SSHF is targeting September 1 to re-open the exhibit galleries to the public. Summer programming has all shifted to online delivery. Staff remains available via their personal emails and general requests or questions can be sent to [email protected]×
With the holiday season now upon us and things getting as busy as ever for all of us, we wanted to do something to keep you all in the loop as to what is happening at the Hall of Fame. The last couple of months have been amazing, not to mention busy for us, so there is a lot to cover.
In this issue of For The Record you will find a message from both our President, Trent Fraser, as well as Executive Director, Sheila Kelly. In addition you will find updated information on some of our inductees, along with a full recap of Grey Cup fever in Regina and the world premiere of our latest video project.
Thanks to everyone for your support of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 2013 and we look forward to seeing all of you in the New Year!
Recently we held our annual reception where President, Hugh Vassos, had an opportunity to thank the many individuals who have invested in our organization over the past year. Inductees, financial donors and sponsors, and volunteers were in attendance to celebrate the season and hear about the current state of the Hall, as well as where the Board of Directors saw things headed in the near future.
It is always exciting to see so many good people out and hear so many good things surrounding what we do with respect to the sports history of this province. There were a few drinks poured and some great appetizers were had as everyone in attendance took the opportunity to mingle, meet a few new faces and share their experiences with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Special thanks to our Reception sponsors Boston Pizza South, Molson Canadian and E & J Gallo Winery.
For those of you who were not in attendance on this night, worry not, as we are more than happy to share all of our news and happenings with you through the latest release of “For The Record”, our newsletter which chronicles all of the happenings at The Saskatchewan Sports Hall Of Fame. The November/December edition is available for download here as a PDF file.
We encourage you to come down and visit us on Location at 2205 Victoria Avenue, where our exhibits are constantly changing…..literally. Lorrie likes nothing better than to switch up the exhibits in mid-run to keep more of our permanent collection out in the public eye. On now through the end of December is “Court is in Session”.
