Final deadline to submit nominations for the Coquitlam Hall of Fame and Wall of Fame
COQUITLAM, BC – Spring is nearly here, and with it the final deadline to submit nominations for the Coquitlam Hall of Fame and Wall of Fame. As a free public exhibition of local heroes and their impressive achievements, the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame is about celebrating the best of our community.
To do that, the executive asks the public to submit nominations for possible induction and honours for both the Hall of Fame and Wall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame pays tributes to athletes, teams and builders who have reached a pinnacle in their sport over a lengthy career, either as a Coquitlam native, resident or with a Coquitlam club/team.
The Wall of Fame honours the city’s athletes, teams and volunteers who made major achievements in the previous calendar year (2016).
The deadline for nominations is April 8, 2017.
Recipients and honourees will be selected from those nominated, with a special ceremony — the annual Coquitlam Hall of Fame induction gala — held in June.
Nomination forms for both the Hall and Wall awards are at the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame website: www.coquitlamshof.com.
Nominations may also be submitted by mail to:
Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame,
1029 Ridgeway Avenue,
PO Box 1212,
Coquitlam B.C., V3J 6Z9.
A ceremony will be held in June to induct the newest members into the Hall of Fame and mark the achievement awards for the annual Wall of Fame.
The Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame is located at 633 Poirier St. Housed in the foyer of the city’s main leisure facility, it is overseen by an independent and volunteer executive board.
