Lacombe Sports Hall of Fame

In celebration of the Allan Cup being held in April, 2019 in Lacombe at the Gary Moe Sportsplex, the Lacombe & District Historical Society is preparing a Sports Hall of Fame with some of our favourite images from the Michener House Museum & Archives. 

The Lacombe Sports Hall of Fame will include photos, bammers and posters showcasing our rich history in sports; Lacrosse, soccer, baseball, skating and curling were among the early sports that were popular prior to the 1900s. 

The temporary exhibit will be on display from April 7th to 14th at the Gary Moe Sportsplex. 

Lacrosse, soccer, baseball, skating and curling were among the early sports that were popular prior to the 1900s. Hockey and skating started out on outdoor rinks till the first rink was built in 1900.

The project will highlight the achievements of members of the community showing some of our very best.

Exhibit on display: April 2019
