The RI Hockey Hall of Fame and the RI Reds Heritage Society have jointly announced the postponements of their annual enshrinment and reunion events for 2020 due to the social distancing and health concerns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is with great regret but with an abundance of caution and concern that this well considered decision has been made,” stated Hall of Fame chairman, Vincent Cimini. “Erring on the side of caution, we are now planning to combine our Class of 2020 inductions with those of our Class of 2021 next year.” It has already been re-scheduled for next year – Friday, August 27th, at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, RI.

The “Class of 2020” inductees-elect are Tim Army, David Capuano, Lou Cimini, Jack Ferreira, Jim Fullerton, Paul Guay, and Garth Snow. Buster Clegg, selectee for the Hall’s 2020 Malcolm Greene Chace Award for contributions to hockey, will also be honored.

At the same time, the RI Reds Heritage Society has announced the postponement of its 20th Annual Reunion Weekend, also previously scheduled for late August. The announcement was made by society president, Andre Mayer. That 3-day reunion celebration will take place next year, August 26th thru 28th, also at Twin River.

Those who have already purchased tickets can expect a full refund within the next few weeks.
