Award of Distinction


"Award of distinction" had been added. It may be awarded to the sports organisation that has served the city of Burlington for a long period of time. The Award of Distinction was not awarded in 2018. ‚Äč

Four members of the Hall of Fame have received additional honors. The late Gord Dickson will be one of three athletes to have his photograph placed on the route of the historic Around the Bay Road Race. The photo used will be the one from our website. Jesse Lumsden will be inducted into the McMaster University Sports Hall of Fame in September, Don Green will be inducted into the Canadian Sailing Hall of Fame and Don Leggat is now a member of the Canadian Squash Hall of Fame.

The new high school in Hamilton is named for our Hall of Fame member the late Bernie Custiss. A much deserved honor!

Dr. David Levy is now a member of The Hamilton Hall of Distinction.
