The Niagara Falls Old Timers Sports Hall of Fame has changed its name to The Niagara Falls Sports Hall of Fame. The organization, formed in 1968, has inducted 250 members and is working on creating a new image. Coinciding with its new name is a new logo.
The group invites visitors to check out its new website, www.nfshof.com, as well send inquiries to its email account at [email protected]. Those with Facebook can search "nfshof" to find the organization.
Applications can be accessed and submitted online or obtained from any board member. Hall of Fame organizers report the selection criteria has been upgraded.
