Dear Honorees and Friends:
We are heartened by the overwhelming number of e-mails, letters and calls we have received since June 22. We spent 18 months preparing for the event and your feedback has made it all worthwhile. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
We are now working toward a mission statement that will encompass a focus on youth, as well as the continuation of the reunion concept that is a staple of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.
Be assured that we will keep you posted on our planning for the future.
Happy Fourth of July!
NEBHOF Executive Committee Member
The New England Basketball Hall of Fame casts a wide net over the accomplishments of the region’s renowned basketball participants, including players, coaches, administrators and officials at all levels.
The idea for the New England Basketball Hall of Fame sprang from the notion that among all the places basketball developed, from the concrete courts of New York City to the backyard hoops of Indiana, the initial seedbed for basketball was New England. A game that took root in middle Massachusetts is now played all over the world.
The Hall of Fame recognizes the people whose excellence has contributed to the rich legacy of New England Basketball. The categories that envelope all the people who make up this storied past are necessarily varied. The Division III female player, the Division I star, and the Basketball Hall of Fame Coach all weave colorful threads into the fascinating tapestry of New England Basketball.
Those who share a love of the game and whose memorable basketball accomplishments deserve special recognition gather every several years in a new spirit of goodwill and camaraderie to congratulate one another and to enjoy the profound satisfaction of being part of the distinguished heritage of New England Basketball.
The next Hall of Fame Induction ceremony will take place on June 22, 2013. Nominations for individuals, teams, or groups may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
