The West Haven Hall of Fame Committee has announced it will postpone its Hall of Fame inductions scheduled to take place, Saturday, Nov. 21.
Citing COVID-19 concerns, which include, health and safety, as well as the amount of people allowed in a facility, the committee overwhelmingly decided the best course of action was to move the dinner and event to next year, Saturday, Nov. 20.
The 2020 class was to be the first class honored and to use the new facilities at West Haven High since the ceremonies began in 2000.
The new soon-to-be inductees include Joe Pereira, Ada Udaya, Krystle Flemming, the late David Romanoff, Roland Depew, Gennaro “Jerry” Gambardella, Sr., the late Gennaro “Jerry” Gambardella, Jr., and the Keyes brothers – Michael, Ted, Ed, and the late Steven Keyes.
The night will also see long-time announcer and forever Westie Brian Dinneen receiving the first-ever Tinker Blake Community Service Award.
With five members, a father and son combination, a quartet of siblings, and a community service selection, there will now be 186 inductees in the prestigious club since the start two decades ago.
Details regarding the new 2021 date will be announced as they become available.
