Greater Shepparton City Council is calling for nominations from community members to be part of the Sports Hall of Fame Advisory Committee.
The committee will oversee a Sports Hall of Fame for the Greater Shepparton region, recommend inductees to council and celebrate their achievements through an official induction ceremony.
The committee will be made up of up to 10 members for a two-year term, including a representative from ValleySport, four council representatives and up to five community members.
Greater Shepparton Mayor Kim O’Keeffe encouraged anyone with a passion for maintaining the history of sport and recreation in our region to apply for a spot on the committee.
‘‘The committee will be responsible for researching sporting talents and making recommendations to council and celebrating their success,’’ Cr O’Keeffe said.
‘‘We have so many fantastic sportspeople and sporting administrators, so it is important we recognise their contributions and achievements.
‘‘If you are keen to be a part of this important project for our region, then have a look at the website for more information.’’
