What is the Livonia Hall of Fame?

Every year the date of the annual 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame is circled bright red on the calendar of many Livonia residents. This year is no exception–on the first Thursday in October.

The Induction Ceremony has been the gathering place for an incredible community of creative thinkers and innovators, the source of so much of what has been given to Livonia since our incorporation as a Township in 1835 and as a City in 1950.

The efforts of those inducted have helped create a sustainable hometown of which we are all proud.

Please join us and our esteemed friends from Livonia at the 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame Induction. We gather to advance the work and continue the recognition of leaders who have dedicated a portion of their existence to bettering a town they live in or work in.

Livonia is a great hometown

Sense. Feel. Cultivate. Enjoy every aspect of Livonia. If earth’s great treasure lies in human personality then Livonia is a rich community indeed. The personality of this hometown was formed and shaped by the first farmer planting seeds in the fertile soil of Livonia Township.

To recognize the work put into building the foundation of a long-lasting, stable community, the 1835 City Hall of Fame was established with the induction of its Inaugural Class in 2005. Every year since then, the date of the annual 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame—the first Thursday in October—is circled bright red on the calendars of many Livonia residents. The Induction Ceremony is a gathering place for an incredible community of creative thinkers and innovators, the source of so much of what has been given to Livonia since our incorporation as a Township in 1835 and as a City in 1950.

Induction into the 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame is conferred on those individuals whose vision helped shape our community, and whose work and deeds have advanced the good name, image and reputation of a hometown built with a desire to redefine community, engage citizens and create traditions and institutions of which we can all be proud. Their singular efforts will forever be recorded as playing a significant role in challenging future generations to raise the bar of excellence. This commission carries with it a responsibility to be Livonia’s continued ambassador of goodwill and fellowship around the world.

Everyone who has lived, shopped or played in Livonia should give pause to thank those who gave of their time and energy, so that those who call Livonia home will have that opportunity to enjoy the institutions already in place, the culture defined and the heritage appreciated.

We hope you will join us for the next 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame as we gather to advance the work and continue the recognition of leaders who have dedicated a portion of their existence to bettering the town they live or work in.
