ELKHART, Ind. – In a emergency meeting of the RV/MH Hall of Fame (Hall) executive committee on July 6th, the committee voted to postpone the Annual RV/MH Hall of Fame Induction Dinner until Thursday, December 3, 2020. The ceremony was originally scheduled for August 3rd.
Darryl Searer, president of the Hall, said, “I have had better days, but we need to do what needs to be done. And postponing the Induction Dinner amid the continuing Coronavirus pandemic is the appropriate course of action.”
In their decision, the executive committee believed the atmosphere to celebrate at this later date would be much more positive, health concerns would not plague the evening, and an overall feeling of peace of mind would more than likely be present.
Searer added, “And the Class of 2020 Inductees agreed. As it is their day, I have spoken with the Inductees and the overwhelming vote was to move the date towards the end of the year. They all thanked us for agreeing to move the date.”
The Class of 2020 includes:
Mark Beecher, RV Retail Finance, South Dakota
Garth W. Cane, RV Service Technician; Professor, Cobourg, ON, Canada
David Fought, RV manufacturer, Indiana
Jeff Pastore, RV Dealer, Ohio
David Schutz, Supplier, Indiana
