2020 Induction Moved to 2021!
Delaware Valley's Terrier Hall of Fame committee has made the decision to postpone the Fall 2020 Induction ceremony to the Fall of 2021. Due to the current circumstances regarding Covid-19, and the desire to put on a first class affair for the Inductees and their families, we feel that this is the best option.Once the Football schedule for the Fall of 2021 is set, we will select a new date for our event.The plan moving forward from the Fall 2021 ceremony, would be to have the next ceremony in the Fall of 2022 and then every other year moving forward (2024, 2026, etc.). Should anyone want to make a nomination for the class of 2022, you can find the nomination form on the Del Val High School website.Should you have any questions, please email Andy Fitz at firstname.lastname@example.org
