With the Class of 2013 now officially in the Monroe County Sports Hall of Fame, we anxiously look forward to 2014.
The first order of business is the unveiling of our Wall of Fame, the hanging of the plaques commemorating the first three classes. Target date is some time in October or early November. This is the sum total of four years’ work, going back to the inception of our organization in 2009. We didn’t have a place to hang our hardware at the time, but we do now, thanks to the Cook Group/CFC of Bloomington.
Board member Brent Slinkard worked closely with Jim Murphy of CFC, and we now have a highly visible place in the atrium of Fountain Square Mall on the south side of the square in downtown Bloomington. At present we have a prototype of our seal up on that wall, promising a future home of the Monroe County Sports Hall of Fame. And sometime in October/November, we will have a formal unveiling and reception open to the public. Details will be posted here as soon as we firm up the date.
We are beginning the selection process for the Class of 2014 as well as fund-raising. This endeavor could not succeed without the help of generous donors and sponsors. If you would like to participate in the process, there is a donation button on this page. And, if you have a Monroe County sports person you would like to nominate, please do so by our e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
