How it all began – celebrating our sporting heritage!
In early November, 1997, an article was placed in the local paper suggesting the need for a Sports Hall of Fame in Middleton and requested those interested in such a project to attend a meeting on November 12 at the Middleton and District Arena. ….
The original purpose of the Wall of Fame “to preserve the history of sport in the area in written form and in pictures” is now a reality. People of all ages can see and read about our local sport heroes of the past and hopefully the young people of today will be motivated to achieve their best in sport activities.
