Hockey Hall of Fame, Reds Heritage Society announce postponements

Army, Clegg, other inductees will be recognized at 2021 event

LINCOLN — The Rhode Island Hockey Hall of Fame and the Rhode Island Reds Heritage Society have jointly announced the postponements of their annual enshrinement 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,” said 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.”

The event, which was set to set to honor among others former East Providence star Tim Army and East Bay resident Sylvester “Buster” Clegg, has already been rescheduled for next year on Friday, Aug. 27, 2021, at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln.

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

At the same time, the Rhode Island 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 three-day reunion celebration will take place next year, August 26-28, 2021, also at Twin River.

Those who have already purchased tickets can expect a full refund within the next few weeks. For more information email info@rihhof.com or visit www.rihhof.com.
