2020 Hall of Fame News & Notes

July 6, 2020

We are sorry to announce the resignation of Jesse Richey from our Board of Directors.  Jesse joined the Board in Auguest, 2012, and made many solid contributions to the Hall during his 12 years with us.  We would like to thank Jesse for his faithful service, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

We are also sorry to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Picnic & Jam.  Given the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 virus, it's nearly impossible to plan an event.  We're also concerned about the health of our musicians, guests and car show participants.  We will restart the picnic in 2021.  We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

The Hall of Fame web site has been fixed and updated.  Major updates include an updated Community Involvement page, and improved photo galleries.  Where possible, we enlarged the photos on the site to improve your viewing experience.  Unfortunately, some of the older photos became too blurred when enlarged, so we had to leave them as-is.  There are also a number of minor updates and corrections.

Additionally, We were able to add photo gallery pages for the 2019 Picnic & Jam and the 2020 Induction Ceremony. Be sure to check them out!

The Hall of Fame and the web master extend their apologies to those who use this web site.  We encountered some serious problems with the site, partly (if not entirely) due to an update that our web host made, entirely unknown to us.  While the web site still worked, we had difficulties making updates to the site.  It took a while to figure out the problem, but we have done so and have come up with a solution.

We are in the process of making necessary fixes, and we are also updating pages where needed.  It will take a while to review every part of the web site, but we will get it done as soon as possible.  We will also add a photo gallery from the 2019 Picnic and the 2020 Induction.

Check back regularly to see the progress we have made.  Thanks for your patience.

The 2020 Induction Ceremony is history!  As with every ceremony, this one was very special.  We had good food, a great audience, and music that was some of the best in the Wabash Valley.  If you missed it, you missed a great party, so be sure to attend next year!  Where can you go for $15, get fed, socialize with your friends and listen to the best musicians in the Valley? Only here!

The Hall of Fame gratefully acknowledges everyone who helped to make this event possible: Our host, the Zorah Shrine, our sponsors, our opening act, Tyler Trueblood, and our many volunteers.  Our sponsors were very generous to us.  We appreciate every one of them and encourage you to partronize their stores.
