Reflecting on a hall of fame celebration that could have been

Traditionally at the time of year in the county, we would be getting ready to celebrate the latest crop of inductees to the Glengarry Sports Hall of Game, but alas, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that isn’t happening.

Back in May, the hall announced its 2020 inductees (You can read my story about the five honourees here) but at the same time revealed plans to delay the induction ceremony.

The five inductees – Barb Benton, Glen Campbell, Heather MacLeod, Michael Robertson, and Corey Van Loon – from this year will officially be recognized at a celebration next year, scheduled for August 18, 2021, in Maxville.

I am told that there will be no additional inductees next year, as there are no plans to make the 2021 event a double bill.

The hall typically publishes biographies of each of the inductees in the lead-up to the event, and these articles are scheduled to be revealed the the public next spring.
