The 16th Annual Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame induction will be held on Saturday, April 7th at 5:00 PM at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
One of the things that makes this event so special each year is the gathering of members (past inductees and directors) to welcome the new class of honorees. On April 7th, the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame will be honoring our Lifetime Service inductees (L-R) John Lopresti, Bob Gay, John Staulo, Dennis Fenton, Burton Burger and our Outstanding American inductee Dave Lipton.
Their achievements will be recognized by the prestigious National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum in Stillwater, Oklahoma with an official commemorative plaque, a National Hall of Fame jacket, a biographical poster board and a keepsake program booklet. Their names will be memorialized with the other inductees on the National Wall of Honor. Even more poignant will be the priceless memories forged when you and your friends experience this special tribute with these outstanding inductees.
We will also announce recipients of the Jim Peckham “Earning the Right to Win” Scholarship.
The banquet and ceremonies will be held in one of Gillette Stadium’s function halls and will feature a plated dinner and, of course, the induction of six outstanding individuals.
The ceremonies will be officiated by NBC Boston anchor Brian Shactman. The event promises to be a fun night of celebrating and reminiscing that will honor these teams and individuals and provide memories of their great accomplishments.
