Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Youth Event

Friday, January 15th, 2016

The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that plans are underway to recognize the contribution of our youth to Sport in the West Parry Sound Area. In an event planned for May 28th, 2016, Bobby Orr will host an evening to recognize the young leaders in Athletics and Active Living in our area.

Over the years, Bobby Orr Hall of Fame staff and volunteers have heard requests from the community that the Hall of Fame find a way to recognize our local youth and future leaders. At each annual Induction, there is an award to recognize the ‘Top Defenseman’. Mr. Orr, staff and volunteers see an opportunity to build on this; as such, we will not be hosting the 2016 Induction,  but will be dedicating our efforts and focus on delivering on the goal of Celebrating Youth. Nominations to the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame will continue to be accepted for future Induction Ceremonies.

While plans are still underway, our community can expect to be requested to look at all local sports and the leaders and achievers and be prepared to submit nominations on those who should be recognized. More details on the event will be posted on the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame website in the near future.

We look forward to hosting an evening dedicated to recognizing youth in our area.
