The East Hants Sport Heritage Society will host its 2017 Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday night inside the Keith Miller Arena. The East Hants Sport Hall of Fame recognizes the best athletes, teams, coaches, and builders of sport in East Hants history. The 2017 class will include six individual inductees, and two teams.

The Hall of Fame has operated since 2013 and its physical location is located on the second floor of the Sportsplex. The 2017 class will be announced in March. Through a partnership between the Sport Heritage Society and the Elmsdale Scotiabank, tickets for the Hall of Fame are matched for up to $5,000. Tickets are now available during regular business hours at the bank and can be purchased for $25.
