Hall of Fame exhibit to open at museum

Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Excellence in Motion exhibit unveiled this weekend

The Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame has a new home.

Previously housed at the Capri Centre Mall, the COSHF will now be displayed in the upper gallery of the Okanagan Heritage Museum for the fall and winter of 2015-16.

To mark the occasion, the Excellence in Motion exhibit will be open to the public this Saturday, Oct. 24.

The Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame highlights local inductees, artefacts, and treasures from sport communities of the region.

Excellence in Motion explores and honours the legacy of local sporting history in the Okanagan and the groundwork that was laid for our present-day sporting communities.

Visitors will be immersed in the rich sport heritage of the Okanagan and share in the pride and celebration of local athletes and sport leaders.

The Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame recognizes and commemorates those whose commitment to sports in our region continues to inspire all of us to do better in our sport, in our community, and in ourselves.

The Okanagan Heritage Museum is located at 470 Queenway Ave. in Kelowna.
