Alpena Sports Hall of Fame seeking nominations
Are you a voting member of the Alpena Sports Hall of Fame Association? Do you know an athlete that you think should be in the Alpena Sports Hall of Fame?
If so, the Hall of Fame Board wants to hear from you.
The Board is seeking athlete nominations from voting members for ballot consideration before the class of 2022 is selected.
An athlete must be removed from being an active competitor in their sport and their accomplishments and contact information must be filled out on a Hall of Fame form.
In addition to the form being found on the Alpena Sports Hall of Fame Facebook page, you may also pick one up from The Alpena News or Jimmie Garant’s Party Store.
Completed nomination forms will be accepted until August 31, 2022. Forms should be mailed to Alpena Sports Hall of Fame, PO Box 354, Alpena, Michigan, 49707.
Forms can also be given directly to a member of the Board including Liz Klemens, Mike Kollien, Mark Jacobs, Cindy DeRocher, Nancy Garant, Phil Schultz, Trevor Roznowski or Chuck PIontkowski.
Once nominations are in, the board votes on those nominees to be included on the ballot which is sent to the Association members for the final selection of those for enshrinement.
If you’d like to join the Alpena Sports Hall of Fame to become a voting member, you can do so via the Alpena Sports Hall of Fame Facebook page or reach out to Liz Klemens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 38th annual banquet will take place at the APlex on May 6, 2023.
