As many people may be aware, we lost our President, Dave Mills, on June 11 of this year. Inducted into the Belleville Sports Hall of Fame in 2010, Dave became president of the Hall of Fame in 2016, and he was the driving force in reestablishing the Hall of Fame.  A consummate leader, Dave worked with the community to bring the Hall of Fame back into focus after its brief hiatus in the early 2010s. We remain thankful for all of his direction, contributions and initiative; he is, and will continue to be, missed.

While COVID-19 has impacted our ability to hold induction ceremonies, we are continuing our “behind-the-scenes” work in preparation for the time we are able to come together again to celebrate Belleville’s athletic community.

New Committee:

  • Ian Press – President
  • Nancy Popovich – Vice-President
  • Kerry MacKinnon – Secretary
  • Joe Bell – Treasurer
  • Liane Woodley – Member at Large
  • Eric Lindenberg – Member at Large
  • Jennifer Kerr – Member at Large

Future Plans:

Dave set the bar high during his time as our president. He set an example we aim to follow for the Belleville Sports Hall of Fame into the future. Recently we have been reviewing our present status and setting priorities for the next year.

We will be following the status of COVID-19 public health measures and advice, and look forward to setting a date for our next induction ceremony. We will share this as soon as we are able.

Will will also be looking to expand our committee through an application process that will take place this fall. Please look to our social media (listed below) for further information in the coming months.

The Belleville Sports Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing, honouring, and preserving the record of outstanding achievements accomplished by the city’s elite athletes and builders from all eras, and displaying them on a permanent basis. The Hall of Fame is housed in the Dr. R. L. Vaughan Atrium at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Center, at 265 Cannifton Road, Belleville.
